AllMusic Review by

New York hardcore is insular, persisting unchanged for 15 years. If you don't like it, you can lump it. Madball singer Roger Miret and guitarist Vinnie Stigma go back that far (from Agnostic Front) and, like mice running the same wheel year after year, still believe in the old form. If, after all these years, you're still only satisfied by gnarled, growled vocals, dirty thrash sound/riffs/aesthetics, and super-short songs with lyrics celebrating skinhead-hood, then this collection of Madball's 1989 recordings is the place. Young thrash purists unite.
