Thé album S L A P S harder than a long word on my dyslexic brain. Fast, vivid, what more do you want from a punk album. The vocalist sounds like he’s going to collapse from exhaustion which is quite R A W.
Thé double handed slappers are:
- spring
- end on end
- For want
- Haines point

Fast, loud, and passionate, Rites Of Spring's first and only record served as a rough but nonetheless effective blueprint for the "emo" genre. It's for these same reasons that this album holds up as one of the best out of the hardcore scene of the 80s, and an undeniable classic.

Since I am an emo fan, if I were to rate these pioneers of the genre lowly, it would be a crime.

This is a well constructed and cohesive punk/hardcore album that brings a good amount of power and angst to their sound. This did well to shape the hardcore punk scene, along with many others along these lines; this album just likely falls between the cracks compared to more focal punk records around this era given how much was being put out like this around this time.

Favorite track: Nudes

OI LAD THIS IS'UN EMOTIONAL HARDCORE PUNK ALBUM

This is one of those albums where even though I'm not depressed or angry at all, I still feel for this passion and emotion that's going through the songs. Like, there is some true poetry in here. The dude is literally about to collapse, yet I'm still pushing for him. The start of emo right here, and it's always been a favorite.
