REVIEW: V/A Respect Your Roots Worldwide


V/A Respect Your Roots Worldwide

CD 2012 Strength Records

The ‘Respect Your Roots Worldwide’ compilation brought to us by Strength Records and compiled by Roger Miret and Onno Cromag brings back memories to the days I looked forward to the release of the ‘The Worldwide Tribute To The Real Oi’ Part I & II compilations, the ‘Respect Your Roots’ compilation and ‘The Dutch Hardcore Tribute To The Real Oi’ compilation.

The beauty about this compilation is that it goes further than all the compilations mentioned above. It has a diversity of hardcore, punk, oi, metal and rock bands going back to their roots and covering the songs of their youth not restricted to a genre or a style. This results in a.o. The Dropkick Murphys covering Bruce Springsteen, Biohazard covering Misfits, Freddy Madball covering The Clash or Hudson Falcons covering The Jam.

This compilation is a must have for everyone with a heart for hardcore, punk and rock. Its also a great soundtrack when your are on your way to a concert. 8,5/10.
