A FUCKING MASTERPIECE!

yeah, I know that you can download NO COMMENT´s complete discography on nearly every 2nd blog. so why am I posting the 7" you may ask? well, cause I think that the 7" hits a lot harder than the complete discography! it´s the same thing with the CHARLES BRONSON 2 x CD discography: songs that are brilliant on their 12"/10" get buried on the 2 xCD ! nothing sticks out anymore and everything tends to sound the same! another point is that you don´t get the brilliant artwork that the 7" had! here´s a review from a SLAP-A-HAM discography page in case you haven´t heard about NO COMMENT before: When I first reviewed this 7" in The Crass Menagerie issue #3 it was a short and sweet review meant to coincide with the second pressing of the “Downsided” 7". In that I review I said, “Honestly, this is possibly the finest seven inches of thrash ever produced. NO COMMENT blaze hotter than hell and are as clean and sharp as a scalpel. The sheer energy on this record could light a small city for two or three generations.” Looking back years later it is worth noting that every word of that review is still accurate including the statement that this record may be the finest seven inches of thrash ever recorded. These eleven tracks gave thrash in the 90s the same kick in the arse that the first D.R.I. 7" gave thrash in the 80s. Even hardcore fanatics who are too dense to be SLAP-A-HAM obsessed are able to recognize this record as a classic. Simply put, if you only ever own one record on SLAP-A-HAM it should be this one (or the CROSSED OUT 7!).

  1. A most triumphant return! Welcome back. I agree with everything you said about No Comment. Thanks for the scans especially... they look amazing. I have a Slap-a-Ham post coming soon, but it's in NO WAY on par with this EP!

  5. @ batguano:

    I know it´s now easy to claim as you already did that post but I thought that you´d post L.O.I.! wasn´t that difficult CROSSED OUT & B.U.B.D. are toe to toe with NO COMMENT so they would be my next choice as I`d consider the rest on S-A-H to be not even near the above mentioned bands!

    @ j:

    nice? I´d describe it as brutal as fuck! ;-)

    @ amo ergo sum:

    consider yourself linked!

    @ cory:

    I agree! the discography doesn´t come anywhere close to this 7"!
