AllMusic Review by

A 15-track collection of the second wave of punk that grew up in the outlying cities of Britain. Tougher and faster than the original version, it became known as hardcore and this collection features some of the best from the Business, Vice Squad, Chaos U.K., Addicts, Blitz, Peter and the Test Tube Babies, and the Crack. Selections from Angelic Upstarts, Anti-Nowhere League, Exploited, GBH, Discharge, Cock Sparrer and the Varukers complete this wild and wooly collection.
