Album Review

To those of us who think of "early Boston hardcore" as Jerry's Kids, Gang Green, and SS Decontrol, Slapshot's mere 17 years on the scene qualify them as arrivistes. But when you consider the fact that many of this band's current fans weren't yet born when they hit the scene — and the fact that those other hardcore bands are long, long gone — you realize that in today's punk economy, Slapshot are true eminence grise.

And hey, is that a melody on "Wasted Time"? No, I must be hearing things. Good stuff.
