Angus Soundtrack – Review

November 1, 1995

It’s as if someone asked me what my favorite punk/pop/dumb rock bands were, chose a song apiece, and slapped ’em on a compilation.

UHF/VHF – Review

November 1, 1995

Disc one has 16 noise/ambient/experimental tracks, disc two has 21 of the most insanely heavy songs you’ll ever hear. Many are teasers to new records.

A Slice Of Lemon – Review

November 1, 1995

If you enjoyed the comps Kill Rock Stars, Stars Kill Rock, or Rock Stars Kill, then you’ll be into this double CD as well. There are 39 bands, one track each.

Notes From the Underground – Review

November 1, 1995

A carefully chosen selection of would-be hits from the vast sea of guitar rock bands who reside just below the surface of the American mainstream.

Yellow Pills – Volume 3 – Review

October 1, 1995

A series of records devoted to power pop, which essentially means catchy, guitar-based, American-sounding pop tunes. It’s 21 of those songs – in a row.

Kids (Soundtrack) – Review

October 1, 1995

Most of the songs are performed by Lou Barlow’s Folk Implosion. The exceptions are one Sebadoh tune, performed by Slint, and a rap ditty by Lo-Down.

Don’t Get Too Tense – Review

October 1, 1995

A very hip compilation that deserves a band-by-band. To start off, The Verve are everything you’ve heard about, and maybe a little more. Stylish heartache.

Boston Hardcore 89-91 – Review

October 1, 1995

Curtis of Taang! Records’ goodbye to Boston. Has the same quality and feel of the late ’80s NYC compilations, The Way It Is, and Where the Wild Things Are.

Over the Edge – Vol. II – Review

September 1, 1995

While this compilation doesn’t match up to the first one, Vol. II does have some good songs on it. A good hardcore compilation to pick up.

Battlegrounds – Review

September 1, 1995

The new movement is Gabber. It’s harder, faster, and more vile and violent than the PC raves your mom and dad are now letting you go to.
