  • No two D.R.I. albums sound the same. Four of Kind is a great album. In fact, in some ways Four of Kind was D.R.I.’s best effort. I like everything up until Definition, but this album just showcases Spike Cassidy’s ability to provide good riff after good riff. Felix Griffin, one of my favorite drummers of all time (I’m a drummer), does an excellent job. Some of the snare rolls and accents are so amazing. The fast double bass triplets and explosion beats are great. Better than what 95% of drummers at the time were doing. Brecht’s vocals are too much in the fore ground, but still they sound alright.

    On this album they sped it up a little bit from Crossover’s sometimes sluggish tendencies. Unlike the sound they went to on Thrash Zone a year later (they sounded more like Obituary than D.R.I.), this was the album where they still had it all together.

    This was also the best tour to see D.R.I. on. I saw them with Kreator and Holy Terror (another excellent lost Thrash band) and the show was nothing but high energy.

  • Great album, a classic such as dealin with it and crossover. Unfortunately, it seemed that dri never made an album as good as this one. Any true dri fan would agree that after four of a kind, there was thrash zone (allright) and definition (allright) and full speed ahead (joke). Too bad these guys couldn’t go back to their beginnings and put out the music that dri are capable of making. Sorry to sound like I’m preaching but these guys were f***in awesome back in the early/late 80’s.

  • What CAN’T I associate with this LP? Not much. Just about everything. The half-pipe in my back yard. Skating everywhere in the bay area and getting thrown out of most places for doing it. SKATEBOARDING IS NOT A CRIME and HAVE YOU SEEN HIM? being the stickers of the day. Cab, The Faction, Black Flag, DK, JFA, DI, Adolescents, Descendents, KFJC, KSJS, Thrasher mag would turn your fingers black, Indy trucks were the sh*t and (still are) and Trackers s*cked (and still do), Bones Brigade, but skate Santa Cruz decks, chicks from any other school but mine, swiping Bartles and James (go figure, but hey…), etc, etc, etc, etc.

    This LP is the sH*t and always will be. It makes me feel somewhat old now, but brings back such awesome memories of a time I never will and never want to forget. The fact that Hawk and Cab are still skating and Rollins is still somewhat doing his thing (though RIP Black Flag), definitely brings comfort to me. I put this on, grab my deck, and head out and hit the streets and am taken back in time and love every minute of it.

    Get this now.
