GG Allin: Expose Yourself
1

Sound — 8
GG Allin is back! Well, unfortunately, he's not really. But there is a new GG release out. Some of the material has been out for quite sometime, but there are lots of songs on here that have been out of print for a long time, including the ultra-rare 7" single with the AIDS Brigade! It has all the classic GG, plus some rare acoustic songs. It's the typical GG sound quality, which is usually not-very-well produced, however I was blown away by how great the AIDS Brigade sounded and have to wonder why such a great-sounding 7" went out of print so easily. Also has GG in his 1st band in which he played drums. If you think he was untalented, listen to him kick some ass on them drums!

Lyrics — 8
GG wrote about many subjects. Included lyrical subject on this collection are murder, rape, death, suicide, drinking, abuse, child molestation, defecation, and more! GG wrote all of his own lyrics and even a lot of the music for his songs. GG had a great rock voice, even on his last album when it was all fucked-up from the whiskey drinking over the years.

Overall Impression — 10
What else could this be rated other than 5 stars? This is GG Allin! If you're into the real rock & roll underground, pick this one up and prove it! This is the king of rock! No, not Elvis. Elvis was a Christian who would be against what Rock is really about. GG destroyed Rock and reinvented it as what it should've been already. I love this record because it has GG songs I've never heard before. And GG will always live and the disease will never stop spreading until you're all either dead or finally realize how lame you are!
