No Comment is an enigmatic power violence band, I guess. Only a few songs on this CD have that sludgy, Infest quality. The rest of it sounds like fast, violent hardcore. Then again, as a general rule, the quality of songs on discography collections tends to vary wildly. Some of the songs have an Operation Ivy vibe while others are clearly derivative of Black Flag. The middle tracks are the best songs here. These tunes almost reach a grindcore velocity but still retain their punk-rockin’ goodness. Why couldn’t the whole thing sound like those songs? Again however, I must note that quality tends to vary wildly on discography CDs. This record may not be for everyone. Adventurous punks will dig it.
