Review by cjfphan21

cjfphan21 This review is for the first set as listed. Contact definitely doesn't follow Fluffhead (or there's a tape flip) and fades out before finished (which leads me to believe that there wasn't a tape flip). The end of the recording on the Harpua track cuts (after it's finished, during applause) and Foam cuts off early with no fade.

I'd give the sound quality on the spreadsheet a D+. Vocals are a little off here and there, but they lay it down in Mike's Song, especially Trey. Fluffhead is pretty solid. YEM jams well and is fairly standard, but the vocal jam is pretty crazy and features some good percussion backing from Fish. Harpua is always fun and though the story here isn't anything special or out of the ordinary this one doesn't disappoint. It's worth the listen for the sake of hearing all Harpuas. 3 stars may be a little much, but I think it's fair enough and currently places it at a 2.5.
