YOUTH OF TODAY - BREAK DOWN THE WALLS LP, WHITE
Reissued in 1997 by the good folk at Rev and originally released on Wishingwell Recs (86) and Rev Recs (88). This was the record that made me realise how good YOT were and how powerful their message was. I vaguely remember it taking a while to get used to the parrot like vocals but eventually everything clicked into place and a classic in it's genre was found. This reissue isn't anywhere near aesthetically to the original which I guess is a good thing because what's the point in creating a carbon copy, however I do find the layout to be pretty bland and uninteresting. Saying that it's a classic rev release so in that respect definitely worth collecting. Breeeeeaaaak ....... downnnnn....thhheeeee.....walllllllsssssss!
