belive this is an incredible album because it really touches the base of hardcore music. They dont do anything pretty or fancy they just go and play the music that they love and grew up with. The lyrics in this album touch the hometown. It is about how Buffalo, New York is going to s* and there is nothing to live for here anymore. in my opinion this album is a classic. The band is influenced by alot of differnt music that you can hear and pick out throughout the album. You can hear the influence of thrash metal bands like Metallica, To the influence of original hardcore such as Black Flag. This is a great album and i would suggest buying it.
