A bit of history: Aggressive Dogs have seemingly been around on Japan's hardcore punk scene since 1982, in that period they released a few early EPs, I think this is their first proper album with full production values, it's pretty sharp.
From this period onward though they would adopt more of a NYHC sound and even became good friends with Agnostic Front, their later focus on more gang-orientated themes seems a little laughable at first but they actually melded themselves around that pretty well, I think it's just pretty commendable that lead singer Uzi-One could adopt a new style so well without looking like a terrible poser.
There is basically a massive difference between their old and new stuff, but I think they still play some of their old punk songs at lives, which is cool.
