Customer Reviews


This is a GREAT album. I'm a huge Big D and the Kids Table fan, but I think Brain Failure's stuff is more enjoyable. It goes from great punk to nice mellow China ska. Big D has mostly high energy tracks. My personal favorite song from Brain Failure is Fall In Love 2008. For Big D, I would say Ruin You.

Very Good Split!

Big D has proven once again, they never fail to impress. Brain Failure, I believe has proved themselves as well. This includes more of the punk rock that isn't seen on Strictly Rude, and you just gotta love "Coming Down to Bejing". Worth every penny.


yeah this split is ammaazzinnggg. Big D has a lot of crazy, high energy stuff kinda like their old stuff. Its probably to compensate for all the mellow songs on Strictly Rude(which is amazing as well). Brain Failure did a fantastic job balancing fast punk songs with slower ska songs, making them a tad better than Big D (gasp!!!!!) on this one. All in all, fantastic album well worth the money.
