As I put the Bees Wax final finish on the timber slab...Youth Of Today LP Can’t Close My Eyes winds up through the speakers. The Hard Core from this era..for me, is flawless & Youth Of Today are in that genre. The sound is almost improvised, with the band just following the vox vent of disgust, changing tempo & pace mid way letting lose his angst & musically it's impressionistic , it sounds like what he’s pissed off about. Perhaps it’s just me? Hard Core from this era. Faultless. Perfect. Love it! & If you don’t own this LP, you're not a punk! -- James
