CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. KAINS - Possessions
  Indie rock.
2. THE WARHOLS - Dream Away
  Alt rock w/ a slick aor streak.
3. LIGHTHOUSE - Egghead
  Alternative rock.
4. STROP - Humble
  Noisy indie pop/rock
5. STROP - The Only One
  Entirely different type of jazzy alt. pop.
6. BEDLAM CHOIR - Eternal Battle
  A nice, epic stomp almost qualifying as Doom, but the thrash bit in the middle leaves a slightly disjointed impression. Good Underground Metal but not quite as great as their previous effort.
7. THE PENETRATORS - There's No Way Out
  Stooges-influenced Punk rock.

Side B:
1. INNOCENT CHILD - The Final Crusader
  A more epic number compared to their Monochrome-efforts and their self-proclaimed Maiden-influence shine through a lot more here. Actually quite brilliant in all its rough moms-garage glory.
2. WIL & THE BOYS - Sweetcorn
  Ouch! A very uncomfortable and drastic turn to slick & mellow fem-fronted pop.
3. CHARMING SEED - Where's Your Mind Gone?
  Indie pop.
4. CHASING THE RAYS - Night
  Ultra-British electro-pop like Pet Shop Boys w/ a touch of The Smiths.
5. LOONY TUNES - When I'm Cleanin' Winders
  Experimental electro-dub.
6. SUCH PERFECT LIARS
  Schmalzy soft pop.
