DRI Dealing With It!

DRI’s infamous sophomore release from 1985 is brought back to life with a pile of extras. In addition to the 25 original, Dealing With It tracks on here, there are also 12 demos, rough mixes, and compilation tracks. To top that off, there’s also a cable TV interview from 1986 with the band and live video footage of DRI. The CD would have kicked serious ass without all the bonus material; however, it is nice to have all the extras as well. Still, nothing beats the 60 second or less hardcore anthems being crammed down one’s throat and instigating instantaneous spastic and aggressive foot and body motion, not of the Richard Simmons kind.
