AllMusic Review by

This "two-fer" from Real Gone Music rounds up both of the pioneering crossover/thrash outfit's studio albums into a single-disc package. 1986's Life of Dreams, originally issued via Combat Records, received mixed reviews from the press, but its incendiary blend of skatepunk and metal found more than a few fans, and helped to expand the burgeoning hardcore thrash scene. 1988's Beast on My Back saw the band moving in a heavier and decidedly more metal direction, and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Anthrax, Megadeth, and Suicidal Tendencies.
