This is probably the best d-beat seven inch ever or at least one of the top three. It is so much faster than the first record, and every song on here except "Religion Instigates" has a claim to being the best DISCHARGE song. With briefer lyrics, increased intensity, and the most classic of riffs, this is where their sound becomes solidified as distinctly theirs. "Fight Back" and "War's No Fairytale" are compelling rants against war and the system, and then "Always Restrictions" anti-Thatcher verses explode into the so-stupid-it's-brilliant chorus "SMASH TO FUCK THE FUCKING SYSTEM!" Just when you think it can't get any better, "You Take Part in Creating The System" and its accusations of collaboration and apathy seal the record as a feat of genius never to be repeated. "Religion Instigates" can't quite live up to the pace of the previous four songs, and I've never quite grasped what the line "Religion's just as crass" means- as crass as *what?* Oh well. A good song that I will never tire of hearing, that fits in as a nice bookend to one of the great achievements of hardcore.
