I used to see this record in used record stores a lot. I never bought it for 3 reasons: 99 songs, the songs were too goddamn short, lots of garbage pop punk bands. Lunachicks, Bouncing Souls, [SUB[HUM]ANS], 7 Seconds are good. I wouldn't pay to listen to 1990s garbage bands like Blink182, Dance Hall Crashers, A.F.I. Yuck!!

Ok, I have mixed feelings about this release, and I'll explain why.

The premise was this: Make as many bands as possible submit a song that was not to be longer than 30 seconds. That idea is really cool and original, but the drawback is when you actually try to sit down and listen to the whole thing in one go. It simply can't be done... Imagine listening to 101 fragments of music. That's like sitting and previewing sound clips on the internet before you decide if you really want a CD or not. The songs are over before they have a chance to get going really. If you do a short song or two on a punk or hardcore album, then it's all fine... but 101 short ones at once... in a row?!

Well. I guess my rating of this record is more based on the effort to actually make it rather than the pretty chopped up and fragmented outcome the final release turned out to be.

I give it an A+ for effort, but that's pretty much it.
