V/A - "Histeria" LP

Excellent LP compilation released a few years ago on Lengua Armada. One of the few compilations of recent years actually worth listening to since it's not just throwaway tracks from the bands. Plus, it's got a really nice newspaper type insert with full photos of the bands and a Lengua Armada discography. Remember when bands use to give good songs to compilations? Not just "demo" or "live" versions of already released songs.... Anyways, my favorite stuff on here is the LIMP WRIST, LIFE'S HALT, and DEATHREAT stuff. Although by now you can get the LIMP WRIST and DEATHREAT tracks on their respective discography CDs, the tracks are nice to have on this LP with the full artwork/lyrics. Plus, "The Ode" is probably the best song LIMP WRIST ever wrote... As of this point there is still no LIFE'S HALT discography so I guess this is your only chance to hear this stuff right now. I'm pretty sure the DS-13 and SEEIN' RED tracks are already on some CD by now as well since they have discography CDs too. ESPERANZA sucks but if I knew Steve Aoki was going to end up partying with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan I probably would've made an effort to be his friend back then.... yeah right. Also worth mentioning is the rap part on the SIN ORDEN tracks.... Ugh.
