VARIOUS ARTISTS: Suburban Life Sentence: CD

May 27, 2009

A collection of punk and hardcore featuring a variety of “name” artists like the Hunns/US Bombs, Smogtown (although, sadly, it’s the previously-released gem “Dance Asshole”), Showcase Showdown, Red Flag 77, Pinkerton Thugs, The Decline, Candysnatchers, the Boils, and tons of others. The proceedings are compiled nicely, the sense of continuity from one track to the next is good, and even bands that usually suck pretty hard turn in some strong tracks here. Not bad at all.
