IMO, the best release from this band...

It's weird thinking about DRI and COC-- both were similar in their timeframe and punky/crossover origins-- both played quite fast, and were far from accessible, and, over the years, both bands definitely honed their sounds to a much more metal, streamlined sound.  COC, at least with Blind, was for the better to these ears, but DRI's glory (not saying all the DRI metal albums are bad by any means) is firmly rooted in the far-past.

Dealing With It pretty much has ALL the staple DRI songs-- I'd Rather Be Sleeping, Soup Kitchen, Mad Man, Nursing Home Blues, I Don't Need Society...hell, the whole album is mandatory DRI.

Classic live DRI:

Excellent album as is Crossover, and 4 of a Kind.  They started going downhill with Thrashzone however.

Umm, I haven't heard this.  Or any DRI that I can recall for that matter.

I only have Crossover and Thrash Zone.  Someday I'll grab a couple more.  This and Four of a Kind will be next.
