Various Generations — A Hardcore Compilation

The mighty Revelation Records does it again with a damn fine sounding and looking collection of contemporary North American hardcore bands. With 18 tracks in all, some of the standout offerings on here come from Iron Boots, Keep It Up, Sinking Ships, Cold World and Mental. Local hardcore hellions Fucked Up also make a showing, so that's reason alone to pick this one up. A portion of the proceeds of the compilation go to The Syrentha Savio Endowment (which provides financial assistance to underprivileged women who cannot afford the expense of fighting breast cancer) and Greenpeace. Dig it. (Revelation)
