Review

Review Text It's not often one gets to sample a watershed band's entire musical output on a single CD (Minor Threat's Complete Discography being the ultimate example), but that is exactly the case with this collection by Louisville, KY's National Acrobat. Totaling a colossal 30 tracks, 2004's TNA: The Complete Recordings squeezes all four of the group's official releases: 2000's Can't Stop Casper Adams, 1999's It's Nothing Personal, 2000's cheekily named The National Acrobat, for All Practical Purposes, Is Dead, and 1999's eponymous debut, as well as four unreleased and compilation cuts (in that order) into its 77 minutes. Phew! And yes, in case you're wondering, the group's varied hardcore assault (at times, though they probably wouldn't admit it, verging on sludge metal -- as seen on the Cavity-inspired "Ceramic Ages" and "I'm a Gine") is inventive and lyrically literate enough to sustain one's attention throughout. And you really can't complain about getting everything -- I mean, c'mon! Recommended even before you realize there's a goat-and-pentagram drawing concealed beneath the CD tray. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
