VERBAL ASSAULT: Trial: LP

Clear, crisp, and clean are the best ways to describe the remastering effort with this reissue. Each song seems to have a purpose—never give up, always keep searching, and maintain persistence when all hope is lost until you reach the end. On paper, that may look flimsy. On record, the band sells it with conviction: “Commitment is not measured by the months but by the years.” Give this a spin and you will realize we need this now more than ever. Superb. –Sean Koepenick (Atomic Action, [email protected])
