Originally released between 1987 and 1989 as two separate vinyl EPs, Suicidal Tendencies' Controlled By Hatred and Feel Like Shit...Déjà-Vu were eventually combined into one convenient, almost full-length compact disc. Besides offering two versions of the title track to the band's outstanding 1988 Epic debut, How Will I Laugh Tomorrow (one is the video edit, the other an emotional acoustic version), previously unreleased tracks like "Waking the Dead," "It's not Easy," and "Controlled By Hatred" showcase Mike Muir's gang of social deviants at their best. ST fanatics will no doubt get a kick out of these rarities, which also provide a nice link between the aforementioned album and 1990's stellar follow-up, Lights...Camera...Revolution!.
