VARIOUS ARTISTS: To the Bitter End: CD

Crispy Nuts! In all honesty, the song on here by Crispy Nuts is the only reason I picked this up. At one point in my life they were my favorite Japanese punk band, and they continue to rule in a Supersnazz-covering-Flag-of-Democracy way. The rest of this international compilation (including two bands from Estonia and one from Slovakia) is mostly either shouty Stiff Little Fingers stuff or crusty metal in the vein of Totalitar. Nothing on here is bad or anything, but very little stands out.
