  • “Trust” (track 18) was, as far as I can tell, the first hardcore love song. (In fact, I’m hard pressed to think of any others.)As a “sensitive, tortured” lyricist, Kevin Seconds came to fancy himself a peer of Ian MacKaye’s (Minor Threat, Embrace, Fugazi)–and though he never succceeded–the songs on this album represent a signficant evolution from the group’s inane Alternative Tentacles debut (which featured the classic “I Hate Sports”).

  • I picked this album up after having listened to “Good to Go” about a million times. “The Crew” is great mid-80’s hardcore. If you’re into punk/hardcore, buy it today.

  • I can’t believe that I am the only one who gave this five stars. Whatever!Talk about a good album. With most of the songs flying by so fast that they annoy the s**t out of people, the album is 24 for songs in exactly 30 minutes. Besides hardcore punk music, the lyrics may hit with a larger range of fans. A lot more of a developed lyrical style, even mixing in rap freestyles to the mix, the album’s words could make your mother even like this album. So, if you love fast played punk with excellent lyrics, buy THE CREW!! Also, there are five great live tracks on this album, too!

  • 7 Seconds were, along with Bad Religion, one of the originators of the “fast and melodic” format that harcore punk bands adopted in the early 90’s (NOFX, Lag Wagon, Pennywise are some of the bands that adopted this style). “The Crew” must be the epitome of 7 Seconds “hardcore ” era; the band plays at a furious thrash-like speed, but the vocal delivery always remains melodic without sounding sugary or happy go lucky (sorry, Simple Plan fans!). After this album, 7 Seconds started to “experiment” with their sound, drifting farther and farther away from their faster-than-thou sound and into a more “U2 on steroids” sound. Anyway, “The Crew” is an album that should stand side by side with other hardcore classics like MINOR THREAT, BAD BRAINS, AGNOSTIC FRONT, DRI and BLACK FLAG. The sound varies slightly from song to song (as if the band were trying to improve on the mix each time)but the overall sound is clear yet powerful. Troy’s drumming, though simplistic, cuts through the songs like a hot knife and the rest of the instruments sound intense enough. The lyrics were a bit of a departure from what was going on with the hardcore scene in the mid 80’s; the band sang about unity, tolerance and respect, instead of fearing nuclear warfare, which was the common thing to sing about.”Here’s your warning”, “Definite choice”, “Bully” and the heartfelt but tough-as-nails “Trust” are just some of the stand out tracks. This album, without a doubt in my mind, 7 SECONDS’ finest moment, although newer releases such as “Good To Go” almost match this gem with its raw intensity!
