  Attitude Adjustment - The Collection {Taang!}
By Scannerzine (18.10.10) submitted

Coming outta the San Fran Bay Area in the mid-80s, AA was at the fore of the Crossover movement, although never reaching the popularity afforded to DRI. This 41-track colossus collects the band’s three albums, kicking off with 86’s ‘American Paranoia’. It’s by far the most Punk of the albums but the Metal-Crossover element peaks through with some chugging riffs and de-accelerated beats. By 88’s ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’, the band had already split up once. With only original member being drummer Chris K, the new sound owed a lot to the frantic blur of POISON IDEA with added Metalisms - see the three minute instrumental ‘Royalties’ or the re-recorded ‘Grey World’. An additional guitarist for 91’s ‘Out Of Hand’ aided the band’s mutation into a well-oiled riff machine, complete with widdly guitar solos. It’s convincing stuff with the vocal retaining that POISON IDEA delivery and lyrics staunchly Punk based (‘Swastika Troops’ in particular). A big let down is the horrendously written biog in the booklet. Shame too cuz the booklet has complete lyrics, flyers and photos to accompany it. Good as this is, and a bargain all-in-one disc, I dunno how often I’ll get past ‘American Paranoia’ when it comes to future plays.
