Review of Off! – Wasted Years (Vice)

Off!It might be easy for some to get caught up in the “star power” behind hardcore group Off! (though none will). After all, the group boasts members who have done time with Circle Jerks, Black Flag, Redd Kross, Burning Brides and Rocket From The Crypt but let’s face it, without the songs, who makes up the band is almost irrelevant. Not surprisingly, Off! has little difficulty living up to the hype, boasting roots deep in the hardcore tradition. Even though none of the songs exceed two and a half minutes in length, they pack a mighty punch that will leave you wanting more.
