The formula's not magic, but the cohesion is. This is in your face, wear your heart on your sleeve, sophisticated power rock that no one should be ashamed of. Honestly, with thirty dusty years behind them, the future is still nothing if not bright. Social Distortion will have you laughing right out loud ... just take "Story Of My Life," and the line "I went downtown lookin' for a job." Guys[!], you have a job, it's being Social Distortion, and you're damn good at it.
I'm not saying that Social Distortion needs to be on anyone's top ten list, but if you don't find at least one Social Distortion album in your friend's music collection ... you just might what to rethink that friendship.
Review by Jenell Kesler
Regardless of the length of the cd and what it is lacking, the songs on this cd are all classic Social Distortion tracks like "Prison Bound" and "Ball and Chain". What drew me to Social Distortion from the beginning was the infectious melodies. The song that introduced me to Social Distortion was "Ball and Chain". I could not get that song out of my head for days on end until I bought the cassette version of their 1990 self-titled album. The band's cover of the Johnny Cash classic "Ring of Fire" is as good as the original. I rarely say that about most cover songs. I liked all ten songs on this greatest hits package. I just wish that it was a more comprehensive compilation than a ten song sampler which this cd looks and sounds like than a greatest hits package.
