I don't know what horrible thing I did to deserve getting stuck with someone's PEACE comp-- it was making the rounds to everyone who wanted to tape it, and apparently made my record collection its final parking place-- so that 36 years later I'd have to endure listening to the whole exhausting thing in order to give it a rating for my discogs; but it took me four hours to stream because I had to stop so often to replay a few I loved, and have a variety of tirades about most of the rest.

Somewhere about halfway through I read a lukewarm review and was glad to see I'm not the only one who finds this comp a bit repetitive, inconsistent, or a bit too much. I was wtf'ing quite a bit when I read about New Red tacking their own catalogue sampler of Anti-Flag, UK Subs, etc onto an already complete project from a different time and made for a greater purpose than *advertising items for sale*. That is shameful, tacky and disrespectful.

By the time I had only 3 tracks left, I was just so glad to be almost done, all I cared about was leaving the thing on a good band. MDC, great! That'll be my reward! But no, after the spoken word from S Africa moved me to tears, something else started playing. There they were, 5 unrelated tracks freeloading on the PEACE comp. I looked up and down 59 tracks, then up and down more slowly again. No MDC at all, just gone, erased from the PEACE comp that wouldn't even exist if it weren't for Dave/MDC. I feel cheated, i didn't get my dose of smart and funny to counteract Barely Human supplying the end of side 4 with some of the stupidest lyrics I've ever heard-- and I've heard Gis(m), on side 1. Guess the New Red bands were more important. Than MDC.

It's pretty obvious what happened, isn't it. Charlie Harper is 76 years old, and still, I LOST MY LOVE TO A UK SUB!

another great classic punk/hardcore record from 1984, i remember i bought this for the mdc track but i was also really into negazoine, dri, septic death and well after buying this i ended up into just about every band on this comp, i bought this from dave from mdc himself, they where selling this comp at mdc shows in the mid 80s for 5 bucks for a while, great times great memories and this to comes with a big booklet on all bands on the comp...

...Not forgetting 'Cleanse the Bacteria' which I think is stronger than the PEACE comp if only for the worlds greatest ever band,SIEGE and of course Septic Death.

First pressing had simple b&w labels; subsequent pressings had color labels with the radioactivity-sign on the b-side.

I suppose some folks will shout me down on this, but I just don't think the P.E.A.C.E. comp is as fantastic as we are all supposed to think it is.

There are a handful of excellent tracks and many more "average" tracks. My favorite part of this comp will always be the lyric booklet which is far more interesting than about half of the bands' music.

Nonetheless, no 80s hardcore collection is complete without owning a copy, so start looking of you do not already have one.

Avoid the inferior CD version on New Red Archives, which not only lacks the excellent booklet but tacks on several forgettable tracks by 1990s era New Red Archives bands (read: not good).

Search instead for the original as many were made and it was available in the shrink wrap at good record stores as late as the early 1990s for a fair price. One can expect to pay about $25 to $30 for an original copy these days. Anything less would be a bargain and anything more might leave you feeling a bit of buyer's remorse.

In my opinion, the greatest international hardcore compilation of the 1980s will always be Maximum Rocknroll's "Welcome To 1984" LP, which has recently been reissued on vinyl. There is also a version on CD released by Sonic Reducer Records.

Another great 1980s international hardcore comp is the "World Class Punk" cassette/CD released by ROIR Records in 1984.

Those two along with "P.E.A.C.E." will give anyone a sound introduction to the world of non-US hardcore, which one would be foolish to ignore.
