Side A:
1. ADDICTION - Violence
  Mid-tempo punk.

  Mid-tempo punk.
4. MAD DOG - Killer
  NWOBHM meets surf punk?

  Typical 70s rock that could only be considered NWOBHM by the most indescriminate listener.

  An enjoyable rocker that is closer to NWOBHM but still not there.

  Indie synthpop.

  Indie synthpop.
