Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-08-09 
Recently unearthed hardcore/punk from Colorado circa: 1983. 25 tracks of fast and aggressive tunes with a lot of attitude. Sounds like a mix of early TSOL, Adolescents and the Circle Jerks, et. al. Overall good but with so many tracks it’s a little redundant.

((((1))))) Nice riffs, mid-paced HC/punk.
(((2))) (TOO MANY FCCS – AVOID!)
(((((3))))) Uptempo rockin’ anthemic HC with an anti-war/anti-military theme.
((((4)))) Fast, raging but then pulls back here & there.
(((((5)))) Blazing speed, almost in D.R.I. territory.
(((6))) (FCC “fuck” sung once) Sputterring super-lo-fi, typical 80’s HC.
((((7)))) Raw, spiteful and racing towards the end.
((((8)))) Some nice bass breaks/stop-starts. Vocals sound like Mark Arm of Mudhoney.
((((9)))) Swampy tone but charging tempo ‘ala Circle Jerks.
(((10))) Dirgey, slow number ‘ala Flipper or Fang.
((((11)))) Loose, jazz chords and tempo similar the tiny handful of bands doing this thing (Minutemen, Big Boys).
(((12))) (FCC “fucking” sung once) Tough riff, and hard rockin’ vibe ‘ala Circle Jerks.
(((13))) Fast blast of HC
((((14)))) 1980’s hardcore in a nutshell – fast as hell, pissed off and anti-Reagan (but also says “Yuri (Andraopov) sucks…”)
(((15))) TOO MANY FCCs – AVOID!
(((16))) Fast n’ sloppy HC
((((17)))) Fast and sharply tuned. On target albeit also very messy.
((18)) Generic, messy 80’s hardcore.
((((19)))) Shouted, angry as hell HC and only 16 sec.
((20)) Silly & annoying novelty song with a bunch of old 50’s rock n’ roll riffs.
(((21))) Slightly rawer version of #1
(((22))) Louder version of #11
(((23))) Different take of #18
((24)) Different and cleaner mix of #20
((((25)))) Louder, clearer & better version of #7.
