Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2010-02-13 
84 tracks of crazy, damaged hardcore/punk from Tucson, AZ circa: 1983-84. Lots of odd tempos & lyrics about 3 headed puppies, junkies, and other shit (literally in some cases). Lots of variation but also in places gets bogged down in the “you had to be there” & too many damn similar, short songs. In the same fucked up place as Fang, Nig Heist, and on the slower tunes, Big Boys, and early Butthole Surfers.

(1) Useless intro-literally!
(((2)) Super short & odd tempo
(((3))) Weirdo fast HC with sludge parts ‘ala Fang.
(((4))) Wailing guitars, scattered fast tempo.
(((5))) Raw midpaced HC with backing vocals.
((((6)))) 70’s hard rock, sludgey HC ‘ala Fang.
(((7))) Great riff, dumb vocals, too short!
((8))) FCC – avoid!
((((9)))) Fast & ripping HC
(((10))) Woozy & drunk Butthole Surfers worship.
(((11))) FCCs – “2 times of FUCKED UP”
((((12)))) Confusing but interesting skitso HC.
(((13))) TOO MANY FCCS – AVOID
(((14))) Sharp guitar, big bass.
(((15))) fast jammy psych punk? Yeah that.
(((16))) same thing as #15
(((17))) Sputtering cymbals & fast HC
((18)) Part 2 of 17? With a catchy chorus.
((19)) NOT completely edited for FCCs – sounds like the CD-s messed up – AVOID!
(((20))) Funny parody of DKs “Nazi Punks”
(((21))) Fast & dull HC with some other good guitars.
(((22))) Twangy, cow-punk into 80’s hardcore.
((((23)))) Midpaced HC & some good stop/starts
(((24))) Same tempo of #23, dumb lyrics.
((((25))) Raw as fukk HC, a funny dramatic part with th' Hinckley fam.
(((26))) Slow strummy, then super fast HC.
((((27)))) Noisy & really fast ‘ala early D.R.I.
(((28))) Epic but also short sounding intro then more sloppy & raw HC.
((29)) Raw, choppy mess.
(((30)))) Mid tempo, weird & sludgey HC
((((31)))) Messy but good Fang/Germs thingy.
(((32))) More sludge like #31, more drumming.
(((33))) Rough & raw HC, extremely bare bones.
(((34)) Sludgy raw HC, paper drums?
(((35))) Fast & drunk like the Germs cut in 1/8
(((37))) More sloppy Germs worship. Not bad.
((38)) Fast with some OK stop-starts.
((39)) More of the same as #38.
((40)) Same as #40 (41) Same thing again.
((42)) Fast & scattered but with more character
((43)) Herky-jerky and too goofy.
(((44-53))) Raw & terribly recorded USHC.
(((54))) Slightly better quality, more bass.
(((55)))) Good & fast HC.
(((56))) Super-fast HC with pretty good HC
((57)) Messy skitso HC
(58) Lots o’ drummin & bass.
((59)) Country-punk in a blender
((60)) Fast HC, stop-start repeat.
((61)) Cymbal-laden noisy punk
(62) Beatles cover > Junkie Punks Pt. II
(63-65) All runs together.
((66)) Twangy punk then sloppy HC & crappy cymbal/drum sound
((Messy punk)) 67 + 68 & 69
(((70)))) Coulda been good single/hardcore “hit”.
(((71))) Hard Rock riffs then bam! Fast HC
(((72))) Surf-rock punk HC?
((74)) Disjointed druggy punk
(((75)) Decent riffs, annoying vocals.
(((76)))) Like Love's “7 & 7 Is” on speed.
((77)) Generic strummy hard punky rawk.
((78)) Raw but loud + live sludge HC
((79)) Tinny yet loud US HC blurr
((80))) Noodly, mid-paced to fast HC
((81)) Mixed paced sorta Flipper-like.
((82)) Tweaked punk damaged ‘ala early Butthole Surfers but way short.
(((83))) Raw, fading in/out tune.
((84)) Backwards drumming, warped conversation dementia. More Negativland or hell, very Brownian
