As a connoisseur of indecipherable grunts and groans, I almost passed out upon hearing “Wild Dogs,” the final track on this all-too-brief tape. Each song leading up to it left me more and more impressed. This Montreal hardcore band is so perfectly manic. Every tune explodes with energy. There are some random “Ow!”s and “Ahhh!”s along the way, these perfect bursts of vocal percussion, but then the final song hits and it seems like words are barely even necessary to convey the foaming-at-the-mouth anger, so there are few. It’s legendary. –MP Johnson (Not Dead Yet)
