    who really cares about anything else? if your lookin for musical perfection shit, go listen to dream theater or something.

    sure, 7/10 is great, but supa's reasons are bullshit.
    Supa is clearly a metal head and is picking out things of this album that only metal heads would take notice to. its like listing to britney spear's first album and saying "its not heavy enough"

    Wow, a metal head? Seriously? The most metal I have is Metallica's Enter Sandman and Through The Fire And The Flames. After that, the closest thing to metal in my music collection is Helter Skelter...haha.

    Nice review, but I think you should give them a break when it comes to the level of musical sophistication. Hey, it used to be a punk band, they were still young then, they sucked at playing their instruments and this was their first album and you describe almost every song as 'nothing special', 'doesn't really show any extreme musicianship', 'Nothing much to be heard here' etc.

    I know you're not a metalhead but that's what metalheads like to do... bash every song just for not being sophisticated. Who cares what sounds good, what really matters is how hard it is to play.
    I think you should have written something like 'Although
    they don't really show any extreme musicianship, the riffs are very melodic'. Unless your opinion is different But then I guess you should have given it a 5/10 or something haha

    And Ignition was released in 1992, not 1991.
