This does not capture the West Coast punk scene, nor the key relationships but instead is padded out with seemingly unedited quotes of startling irrelevance; it actually feels like Ogg is just trying to hit an agreed word count by any means.

One of the few hardcore punk albums I love, it's a bona fide classic. From all accounts the guy wasn't sober long enough to remember anything with clarity or accuracy.
