Rock For Light - Bad Brains - Rock For Light (Cassette)

Later versions appeared in solid white, solid orange, solid yellow and transparent red tape shells. Because the yellow cassette shell was most common and it came in a matching yellow package, many fans referred to it as " The Yellow Tape ". In the Dead Kennedys ' record label Alternative Tentacles opened an office in the United Kingdom to issue special editions of records by American punk bands for the UK market. The record's sleeve featured the same lightning-strikes-the-Capitol art that appeared on the ROIR cassette, and the back cover had the inner J-card's band photo, credits, lyrics, and Kaplan's liner notes.

Because Alternative Tentacles UK was a short-lived venture, the Bad Brains EP is rare, and for eight years was the only appearance of these songs on vinyl. When the album was first released, fans and critics alike were stunned to learn that the musicians behind this album — one of the fastest albums of all time upon its release — were African-American Rastafarians who also were skilled at reggae. Reviewing for The Village Voice in , Robert Christgau said, "Turn a fusion band into hardcore propheteers and you end up with fast heavy metal.

The best kind for damn sure, especially since they turn their rage into Positive Mental Attitude. I like it fine. Hope that helps. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. Where "Coptic Times" is the first song and the vocals aren't sped up a bit ridiculously?

This has no depth to it, sounds kind of tinny. Something tells me this is a bootleg. Beware of people selling this off as an original copy. I have a hard time believing there are that many OG pressings still around that are unopened. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.

I can't believe people consider this the pinnacle of hardcore punk. It's faster, sure, but there's no energy on this album. The debut made me get up and kick ass, while listening to this makes me just sit there.

The absense of the bass drains out those awesome ass-grabbingly good beats. If you haven't heard anything of theirs yet, get this, otherwise you'll probably hate the band and Ric Ocasek if you don't already.
