Faith “Subject to Change”

(Dischord) Alec Mackaye had a really weird way of phrasing vocals, kind of avoiding the beat, which was incredibly untypical for hardcore. Yet despite its atypical nature, this record was (and is, in this modified form with added demos included and lots of archival photos and graphics supplementing the original artwork) absolutely typical of the level of quality of the genre-defining DC hardcore of the early 80s that after 30 years of trying few have even come close to touching. The demos from the Faith/Void record are treasures, making this much more than just an EP upgrade.
