(Faith) Twisted excursion through frustration, dejection, eroded trust... spitting out rancor and outbursts of stirring fervor entwined throughout.
(Void) Maniacal pandemonium fortified with rampaging guitar leads..to abyss.
Utopia of vinyl.. You are doomed without it.
review(by Pushead?) from Straight Edge #2, New York 1982.
" Well I've listened to both sides of this album about a dozen times now and I've only had it for a couple of days now. What can I say about it, I'm hardly surprised by the quality of the bands, let's face it Dischord just does not put out bad music, this piece of vinyl is no exception to the rule, it's GREAT. The entire manner in which the album was made puts you in a position to like it, these two bands are extremes in the same world and together on one record they totally send your mind into a shattered mass of disbelief. It's like sitting in a desert and then have snow start falling, do you get what I'm trying to say now ?
The Faith demands respect with their sound which shows a unique sense of originality which occasionally shows you a shadow of influence from Minor Threat. On to Void which in my mind is unquestionably in a class by themselves. Their side of the album is full of surprises that leave you begging for more, no doubt about Void is a band that will have to be reckoned with in the near future. As I already said Dischord doesn't put out trash, so find the money and buy this album which is a kind of like a two for the price of one deal. "

Very important hardcore release; not just for the groundwork for more metallic hardcore on the Void side, but also for the groundwork for the Revolution Summer/"emotional hardcore" sound on the Faith side in the tracks 'What's Wrong With Me?', 'What You Think', 'Don't Tell Me' and 'In the Black'. The Subject to Change EP usually gets the credit, but the sound can be heard developing here.

Also, does anyone know if the two sides were originally intended to be released as separate 7-inches? The lyric sheet for both sides has a gap in the middle of the tracks, and the Faith lyrics even list two side names.
