    I was scared of this CD when I first bought it in middle school. Now it makes me want to skate and mosh. The compilers have astoundingly good taste and have selected the best versions of all of these songs, at least to my ear. I could live without the reggae or “Quickness” tracks but even the reggae has its charms. And I'm grateful that they got the original mixes of the "Rock for Light" tracks, instead of Darryl Jennifer's CD re-massacres.
