Album Review

Alternative Tentacles is smart enough to offer this compilation of the earliest 1978-1981 Subhumans (the original, fantastic Vancouver punk rock originals, not the later English band of the same name), completely remastered and containing the eight songs they released before their classic debut LP Incorrect Thoughts on two 7" singles and an incredible 12" self-titled EP. Two super rare outtakes round out the collection.

You need this disc. ~ Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover, Rovi
