AllMusic Review by

Many punk bands had a vision, a guiding principle that drove them toward their goal. Chaotic Dischord's vision was to use the word "f*ck" more often than any other band before or after. Based on this hyperspeed blast of street punk, recorded in 1985 and reissued in 2001 on the historically focused Punkcore label, they succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. Otherwise, songs like "Loud, Tuneless and Thick" are a bit more on-the-nose than the bandmembers perhaps realize, despite a goofy sense of humor evident in song titles (and, on the rare occasions they're audible, lyrics) like "We're So Fuckin' Deep and Meaningful" and "Revolting Things Make Me Happy." The cod-psychedelia of "Someone's Nicked My Giro" and "Giro Rides Again" makes a nice stylistic change of pace, but otherwise Now That's What I Call a Fuckin' Racket: Live in New York is only fitfully enjoyable.
