Ripped and Glued

The Repos (or The Ropes, depending on the year) out of Chicago are one of the best examples of hardcore punk in the last 15 years.  Great mix of Poison Idea, Jerry's Kids, and maybe a little (early) Youth of Today for good measure.  This is the band's second LP, 'Hearts and Heads Explode' and is my personal favorite release from the band.  All of the tracks smoke and flow together so well.  You'd be hard pressed to find another band that has had such a solid output of material.  Youth Attack pressed 700 copies of this all on black.
