FLAG OF DEMOCRACY: FODworld: LP

So great that these F.O.D. albums are being reissued so that schmoes like me who slept on procuring them the first time around can catch up. This reissue of their 2001 LP is rife with all the goodness they’ve made their trademark—wild, off-the-rails hardcore infused with surprising pop sensibilities and sarcasm to spare. The more I catch up with them, the more I find myself impressed with the consistent quality of their output; hard enough for a band pushing three years old let alone one with more than three decades under its belt. A keeper this is, one more than worthy of inclusion on assorted want lists. –Jimmy Alvarado (SRA, srarecords.com)
