AllMusic Review by

Mega 3 Collection: Christian Rock -- The Punk Years compiles three albums in the Christian punk vein and puts them all into one package. The first disc offers the punk-pop of the Huntingtons' Fun and Games, an amiable album that uses its naïve viewpoint to offset the Ramones-esque songwriting. Left Out's awesome Serve Self is the second album, and its brutal songwriting and exuberant performances make it the standout among the three albums here. The only loser is One 21, whose In the Year King Uzziah Died is a sloppy and unmemorable EP that doesn't live up to the albums around it. But the brief length of that particular album makes it pretty unimportant, making this collection an excellent way to get two great albums and alternately turn people on to the Christian punk scene.
