OK, here's the premise. We not only listen to each album in five minutes, we review it too. I mean, seriously, in today's world, five minutes should be more than enough time to decide if an album is crap or not. Man, could this introduction be any longer? On with the reviews!

This seminal punk rock super-group led by ex-Circle Jerks singer Keith Morris (and also featuring Redd Kross’ Steven MacDonald on bass) seemed to be in a hurry to get somewhere on their first collection of EP’s, as if faster and louder were the only ingredients that mattered. The result was a collection of brief blasts of testosterone-filled rage that started to blur into each other after about the third or fourth track. Quite frankly, I was expecting more of the same, but was pleasantly surprised by the variance from track to track. No song even comes close to the two-minute mark so if you don’t dig a particular tune, just wait a few seconds and it’ll be over.
