Reason To Believe

Finally bought a copy to finally hear this much praised 7 inch. I am old school and buy records to hear them, so also for hearing them a first time. It's sometimes a guess but it makes it so much more exciting than doing a search on google and risk getting a virus while unzipping the download...



As you might have noticed over the years of RWHAF; I am a little sceptical to what collectors generally praise, like Revelation Records, Youth Crew, NYHC, etc. Collectors have a tendency to all like and want the same things. That's what increases the demand for a release for sure. But I have always learned not to trust 'mainstream' things and feel no part from it. I am not saying collecting is mainstream but in that stream of collecting Hardcore, collecting Revelation, Youthcrew, etc. seems to be the main stream.
Now back on topic, I have checked this record now and say this particular praise is justified, I like it a lot. The song "New Foundation" is so well sung by Jon Bunch, it's immediately stuck in my head. Great play copy, not sure whether I will be hunting down the coloured versions. Would need the LP "When Reason Sleeps, Demons Dance"... That's for sure.

So true. I got really really annoyed of watching always the same revelation stuff on social media. So boring. Judge on green, Bold on pink, Chain on clear, Warzone on clear or orange ... uaaahhh ... pure conformity. Collecting stamps should be more interesting than this.

Love this 7", which is why I have about 8 copies! Glad you like it. It is indeed a classic.
