Thrashcore의 명반! 본작을 놔두고 Thrashcore를 논할 수 없을 정도로 Hardcore Punk가 얼마나 더 빠르고 더 난폭할 수 있는지 보여주는 앨범이다. 의외로 곡에 완급조절이 잘 되어 있어서, 적당한 속도감에 안정감을 주다가 다시 빠르게 치고 들어갈 때의 그 쾌감은 정말 짜릿하다. 특히 추천할만한 곡이 "Couch Slouch"인데, 위에 적어놨다시피 말 그대로를 들려준다. 그리고 또 하나의 특별한 것이 본작이 Hardcore Punk와 Thrash Metal과의 Crossover된 곡이 들어간 작품이다. 이후 Suicidal Tendencies, Stormtroopers of Death, M.O.D., Excel, Ratos de Porão 등과 함께 Thrash Metal / Crossover라는 장르로 발전시킨 상징적인 앨범인 [Crossover]라는 3집 정규앨범을 발매한다.
