Witness the birth of a genre

This collection isn't so much of a greatest hits album as it is a timeline in the story of crossover thrash. It begins with 1983's "Dirty Rotten LP" (tracks 1-6), a snarling mass of punk fury. Next is "Dealing With It" from 1985 (tracks 7-11), which starts to blur the line between punk and metal, but still has an identifiable punk sound. Finally we get to "Crossover", the 1987 turning point (tracks 12-17) where punk becomes metal and metal becomes punk. If you want to witness the birth of an influential genre in the span of a single album, this is the record for you. Of course there is a lot of excellent material from the three albums missing here, but it serves as a nice intro to mid-80s DRI.
