Reviews:

One of the first "World" compilations featuring bands from five continents. This one has a variety of musical styles (all "punk" though) and a variety of lyrical messages from yer political punk to lighter subjects like "Fun with Acid", etc... All pretty good stuff, something for everyone - a big accomplishment.
-Al Flipside, from Flipside #43, 1984

A well-rounded international compilation featuring Civil Dissident, Shit S.A., Savage Circle, Hysteria, Riot Squad, Inocentes, Fang, Terveet Kädet and Razzia. Recording quality ranges from good to excellent. My faves were Fang's "Fun With Acid", Razzia's "Enorm In Form" and Civil Dissident's "Mirror of Deception". To everyone at Weird System - keep up the fantastic work!
-Ron Phillips, from TASK #1, March 1985
