Youth Of Today - Break Down The Walls
It was the first full length studio album by these crucial old school hardcore straight edge legend - Youth Of Today. This "Break Down The Walls" LP originally released in 1987 under Wishingwell Recs. and by the time was re-released by Reveleation Recs. in 1997. This album contains 13 greats straight ahead hardcore tracks with aggressive, honest and positive lyrics. Very fast songs that full filled with emotion and everything being played sounded fast, simple loud and raw.
What really brings out sense of hardcore, at least for me, are Ray Cappo's vocals. They're so intense, so desperate and so urgent. That was hardcore used to be completely based on- a need for change, a positive philosophy. At the end, Youth Of Today with this "Break Down The Walls" LP are a legendary old school hardcore band with Ray Cappo on vocal, a must for anyone who listens to HC.
