"Grade / Believe Split" CD (Workshop)

I originally bought this because I enjoyed what Grade had become - however, this largely focuses on chugga-chugga riffs and most of the musically interesting ideas that Grade would later express aren't present here. As far as Believe's songs go, they are really only interesting from a historical perspective because they match Johnny Lubera and Greg Taylor (who would subsequently play together in Jersey). The most engaging musical idea is Johnny's bass playing, which, while not as interesting here as it would later be, is still leagues beyond most punk bands and is one of the main reasons to pay attention.
