This split from Jade Tree is a bicoastal affair, offering exclusive material from Santa Cruz revivalists Good Riddance and N.Y.C. hardcore purists Kill Your Idols. The former's tightly wound sound is well represented here; "Judas and the Morning After Pill" and "Grandstanding from the Cheap Seats" have an urgent punk traditionalism about them that's reminiscent of Bad Religion. For their part, Kill Your Idols prove that the rabid, ragged-edges sound of New York City's defiant hardcore scene is still going strong.
