Album Review

A nascent Henry Rollins waxing hoarse about cops, fights, drug abuse, and girls while a gruff rudimentary thud slams by in the background is about as simple as it gets. But this simple slab of D.C. vinyl — along with the first Teen Idles 7" — greatly altered American punk up and down the East Coast as well as throughout the Midwest. The sonic emphasis for young bands shifted from Ramones/Sex Pistols imitation to a new kind of louder and faster music: hardcore. Additionally and maybe even more importantly, the fledgling Dischord Records that released No Policy inspired a proliferation of D.I.Y. labels that has since continued unabated. S.O.A. didn't invent hardcore — Black Flag or Bad Brains might stake that claim — but the band's stripped-down sound at the right time, together with the youthful scene from which S.O.A. emerged, help make No Policy a lasting document of influence.

PrettyGood!

I didn't have high hopes but his is actually good. Black Flag's better but not bad. The best songs are "Lost in space", "Girl Problems" "Blackout" "Warzone" and "Gonna hafta fight". Fast, Realy Short and loud.Thats wats hear. Nice work.

impressive

10 songs, 8 minutes long, 4 dollars, holy crap this is an e.p. every hardcore punk fan should have.

Can't beat 4.49

Not the best album in the world, but at 4.49...it's a small amount to pay to hear pre-Black Flag Henry Rollins. Thank you iTunes for putting this album up!
