F.O.D. began in the early 80's as a ripping fast hardcore outfit. As the 80's turned into the 90's they began moving towards a more melodic (but still fast) "post hardcore" sound. This 1990 release seems as though they weren't able to make up their mind what sound thy wanted to go after. As a result it can be a bit uneven. But still worth a spot in your collection. This is actually the cd release which includes their "Eight Love Songs" 7" which was actually a re-release of their debut 6 song "Love Songs" 7". Confused Yet?
