      “The Best Of The Suicide Sessions”

      “Suicide Sessions”- an album only for those who can handle sheer rawness that feels like needles piercing your ears, extremely offensive and disturbing lyrics, and the most unlistenable album GG has ever put out. Through the distortion and static is a set of recordings that takes a strong GG Allin fan to truly appreciate and handle. One may find it to be absolute garbage; another, a true masterpiece. But no matter how you look at it, all will feel differently about this intense, raw, disgustingly offensive, obnoxiously ear-piercing record.

      The recording quality in the Suicide Sessions is absolutely terrible. The recordings are extremely cracked and distorted. You can hardly hear the guitar over the noise, and I doubt a bass was involved. The drums come


      in the clearest, which are still very cracky and distorted. The vocals are the worst, to the point where you can’t understand a single word he is saying. It’s a combination of his already-garbage voice and his brutal yelling far too loud for the mic to handle. The result is a bunch of recordings that you will have a very hard time listening to, let alone interpreting as music.

      The songs themselves, for the most part, are actually quite awesome. They are mostly mid-paced punk with some pretty good riffs. It is a shame the recording quality is so bad because a lot of songs on this record are good enough to be some of his best. Of course, you have your garbage fillers that consist completely of random guitar ...


      • and drum noise and GG ranting on about one thing or another. Listen to them only if you are not prone to headaches via loud, random, obnoxious noise. The lyrics are simply offensive and disturbing, making this not an album for the light-hearted. If you can manage to listen through the terrible quality of the recordings, you will find that this is one of the better GG Allin records out there.

        “Anti-Social Personality Disorder”

        The other CD included in the set is nothing more than a bunch of his more well-known songs recorded live. I like the version of “Dope Money” that kicks off the record, probably more-so than the album version. Some will tell you that it’s not worth listening to, I think it is. It all depends on whether or

        not you want to hear some live recordings of GG Allin. They’re pretty good recordings, but of course they mostly don’t stand up to the album versions. Skip it at will.

        This is certainly an album only for the real hardcore GG Allin fans. It takes eardrums of steel and sure strength to get through this record. If you easily et ofended by extremely disturbing and disgusting lyrics, do not pick up this album. Know what you’re buying before you buy it. This is a really hardcore album that’s only for a select group of people that can appreciate its greatness. If you can listen through the recording quality that makes it sound like it was recorded in a cement mixer, you will hear some really awesome songs that can’t be missed.
