Various Spirit of the Streets

Maybe the days of releasing a compilation consisting of a majority of unreleased songs is too much to ask for these days. If that point can be put aside, one can at least find joy in a well-mixed CD of modern day street-punk and oi. With the likes of Agnostic Front, the Swingin' Utters, the Dropkick Murphys, Warzone, Sick Of It All, Gundog, One Man Army, the Business, Oxymoron and Anti-Flag, it's a pretty decent collection and representation of these present day genres of punk. Now, even though this compilation was released by Epitaph, the highlights on the disc all come from non-Epitaph bands, so don't try and pigeonhole this compilation as another Punk-O-Rama, because it's not.
