Top Sounds - A

AFFLICT - I Want It, I Need It... Gotta Have It {TCBYML} Originally released back in 1989, this is a digital only reissue of this Dutch band’s second album. You get 13 tracks that have that kinda slightly warped Hardcore sound of Alternative Tentacles - think PART TIME CHRISTIANS, TH’ INBRED, CRUCIFUCKS and a bit of NOMEANSNO. The songs are abrasive, confrontational at times (check ‘Sharon’) and in some cases could’ve been trimmed down a bit. Interesting stuff though, with particular standouts being the title track that had me thinking of SNFU, the snappy ‘Only One’ (that has a distinct sense of Biafra-esque timing about it) and ‘Sharon’s Remainder’ that continues the theme of that previous, confrontational track and is equally as disturbing. New stuff to me and, while it is very much of its time, still something that deserves some attention. (10.04.21)
