For the longest time I never gave any 'mags album after Age Of Quarrel a chance. I had heard too many negative things, and the last thing I wanted was to hear a bad Cro Mags song. The thought of listening to "Best Wishes" and hearing tracks without JJ's vocals never appealed to me. Once I actually gave that record a chance everything started to change. At first I wasn't super impressed with the lp, but the songs grew on me really fast. Now I can honestly say "Best Wishes" is one of my favorite crossover records of the late 80's. Songs like "Death Camps", "Crush The Demoniac", and "Down But Not Out" continue to blow my mind everytime I listen to them. "The Only One" is one questionable track on the record, but every other song is right on. Harley pulls off the vocals, and the songs are just metal enough to be powerful without souding too rediculous. Below are two of my favorite tracks from "Best Wishes"....
Cro Mags - Death Camps
Cro Mags - Down But Not Out
