I was 9 years old when I attended my first circle jerk. It was a lowly lit room at the Chelsea training ground. I was dressed in a tutu and had my hair in plaits, as was the fashion at the time. My brother shoved me to the middle of the room and then the lights flicked on. I was surrounded by the entire Chelsea first team and backroom staff. They all tugged away at themselves, making strong eye contact with me throughout. I got so swept up by the attention that I didn't realise I was wanking myself. My first time. It was such a turn on. Glenn Hoddle came on my back. Later, we all went out for milkshakes. Somebody bumped into me and I spilt mine all down my front. It was hard to tell what was milkshake and what was jizz. I was completely drenched in both.

I imagine this type of music is made for desperate teenagers, to fit in with an obnoxious anti-establishment crowd, pretending to enjoy a disgusting screamishly loud esthetic and inflect misery upon themselves. Luckily for my average score, I have not yet been graced with the opportunity to review heavy metal... The only redeeming quality about this record is that the tracks are very short, but there is no excuse for the abhorrent sound "Group Sex" contains. I am contemplating not giving this record a score, because I feel sad about it averaging out a perfect 5/5 to two 3/5's. However, to be fair to the 1001 albums project, this piece of garbage gets an absolute 1/5 from me.

Classic hardcore punk. There's no pretension here. It's a great time and at 15 minutes, you feel inspired to just listen to it again, and then maybe a third time. Side note: I enjoy reading the negative reviews for this. Call it schadenfreude I suppose. I guess it's juvenile of me to feel that way, but I can't help it.

Oh man this took me BACK. I hope I get to rate Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death because boy do I have a story. That album opened up the whole genre of late 70s/80s punk to me that, it seems, I still very much love. This is a great album. Took me back to The DPC (Downtown Performance Center) in Tucson and high school (and beyond) and angst and lyrics and band flyers and everything. Operation really hits differently today than it did in high school lol.

It felt like a load of 14-year-old edgelords wrote this because they thought it sounded cool. Punk just for the sake of it. The lyrics were juvenile with no real substance - hey, let's write a song about an orgy to piss off our parents, regardless of the fact that we're all virgins! Where's the rage against the machine, Kevin? Go to a protest or something.

Let's normalize 15 minute albums. There's an argument to be made that if you can't get your point across in 0:31 (the length of the album's two shortest songs), then you should just pack up and go home.

Forget lean, this is a single short-twitch muscle fibre. As an aesthetic and/or statement of purpose, 'shorter and faster than everyone else' won't distinguish them all that much, but their brio and animus might. As will their jkz, which are obvious and the better for it. Henry Rollins should have paid attention.

Un disco rapidito, lo cual se agradece, sobre todo también por el género. Me gusta, caótico, muy "raw", mucha energía acá, como que si provoca una acelaración. Quizá lo único que juega en contra es que la duración de las canciones y su abundancia hace que parezca que de repente es un único track largooooo con variaciones. Mis favoritas "I Just Want Some Skank", "World Up My Ass", "Live Fast Die Young" y la canción titular. 8/10

While overall I don't consider myself - in the broad sense - a fan of punk, I am a huge fan of this album. Keith Morris really embodies the snarling 'fuck you' attitude of punk. There's a sense of irreverence to this album that doesn't swirl out of control like later California punk albums but keeps it from becoming overly sanctimonious like some of the more political-minded punk albums of the time. It's fast, blunt, primitive, and doesn't overstay its welcome. While the band's best track - the cleverly ordered medley Golden Shower of Hits - isn't on this album, this is the most focused burst of overall quality from the band.

If there is a single word that I could pick to describe hardcore punk, it would be efficient. I've been listening to this album for 2 minutes and 45 seconds, and I'm already done with three songs. This album gets through 14 songs in less than 16 minutes. Like I said, efficient This is a fun early example of hardcore and the style of the developing west coast punk scene. I feel like hardcore punk is a bit limited as a genre, but I also know that I would have fucking loved seeing this band when I was a teenager. As I get older, raw power in music appeals to me less and less, but when you're young and full of hormones and anger, it makes you feel like someone else gets it. This album is perfectly that. It's high energy everyday boredom and disaffection. And if you don't like it, it's over in 15 minutes 4/5

Classic punk at it's best, while not a massive fan of punk, it's bands like these that make me wonder why they weren't anywhere near as famous as the Sex Pistols, whilst being way more talented. Raw energy and fast riffs for 15 minutes straight, what more do you want?!

First things first, what a lovely band and album name. I could tell I was in for some rowdy punk music from that alone, and boy was I right. I actually really enjoyed this one. Apparently it's a vocalist from Black Flag, who I also enjoy sometimes. I love the energy on this project, and the fact that it averages just over a minute per track is a welcome oddity compared to some long ones we've had. Guitars are fuzzy but strong, and the drumming is very clear. Just about everything punk-wise is done right here. Among all the punk projects we've had on the list so far, this one is near the top. Not Stooges level for me, but an excellent angsty-garage-music vibe that flowed throughout. Quite a few highlights for me too. Extra points for efficiency of time. Favorite tracks: Operation, Back Against the Wall, Live Fast Die Young, What's Your Problem. Album art: Excellent picture here, love the splashes of color throughout an otherwise monochromatic picture. Great bold, messy font too. What more could you ask for? 4/5

Compared to Bad Brains, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, and Minor Threat, Circle Jerks has been seemingly overlooked as pioneers of hardcore punk. Group Sex is incredibly brief, wasting no time. Get the idea out there and move on. It's incredible. If you know your punk history, you'll trace lead singer Keith Morris back to Black Flag's early days, specifically the fantastic EP Nervous Breakdown. For me, that early Black Flag energy was something to behold, so I thoroughly enjoyed Morris' energy on this album. Every song on here fucks. There's no doubt in my mind they just threw together songs that wee fast and raw and left it at that. Excellent. That's punk in it's purest form.

I remember listening to them back in the mid/late 80's during a relatively brief period of time during which I was interested in punk and similar styles. The genre was so different from what I had been listening to, and to a sheltered suburbanite in his late teens, it sounded dangerous and exciting. Totally get the "rebelliousness" cliche I was part of. (I don't feel bad about it at all; just part of the growing up process. Still doing it in my mid-50s. Life. It goes on.) Listening to punk music for me these days usually leaves me mostly uninterested, so I was curious to see my reaction to this one. I expected to shrug my shoulders at it as part of a fading broader memory, and I was suprised to find myself appreciating what they were doing. Really great playing by the musicians, the singing and lyrics are catchy and fun, and it isn't to my ears as cacophonous as a lot of the genre is to me (it's okay, kids, go ahead and make fun of my middle-aged sensibilities ;-). Overall, really solid album.

Brash fast angry punk rock. Music that can only justifiably be made by teens and twenty-somethings. It takes a special kind of athleticism to be able to execute this music and stay in sync with the band. Didn't particularly like this album, but it didn't rape my ear holes like some of the albums on this list (Mekons, Lexicon of Love, Wild Beasts). 3/5

God the album title and band name combo is eye-roll inducing. But, pleasantly surprised. 15 minutes album... yep it is punk alright. I go back and forth between liking it and not... it feels like it's missing a bit of heart to it for me, it might be just because bands like Dropkick Murpheys and other skank-inducing groups basically co-opted this sound and it ends up being trite and kinda bro-y.

After the 2:52 "69 Love Songs" and the 2:01 "Emergency on Planet Earth," Circle Jerks knocking out 14 song in 15 minutes was actually refreshing. With the breakneck speed at which they hit each of these half-developed song ideas, there is no time to even catch your breath, let alone wonder how much longer a song goes on past it's welcome or how many tracks there are left. So "Group Sex" benefits a bit from the context in which it was listened to. I mean, group sex is probably always going to depend on context.

"I just want some skank!" Hell yeah, who can say no to that? "I don't want to live 'til I'm 34, I don't want to die in a nuclear war..." True-dat! "I've got the world up my ass!..." umm yeah, sad story. "Beverly Hills, Century City, all the people look the same, don't they know they're so damn lame...?" - I couldn't agree more. At nearly 50, I'm definitely not the target audience for this. But there's some great unfocused anarchist energy on this. Love the song lengths and that I could hear the lyrics. But I think it falls short of being substantial or consequential. Would've loved to be at one of these shows tho.

I imagine some scenario where a group of teenagers gathered and was like, "lmao let's troll everyone by creating a 15-minute long chain of screaming and speedy instrumental fiddling." And just like that, a new subgenre was born, or popularized: "hardcore punk." As if punk is not annoying enough right? I'm not really allergic to the so-called "hardcore" sounds. This one is just repetitive and bland, hardcore for the sake of being hardcore.

Wow quickies the whole way - 20 tracks in 20 mins. Reminds me of bands in high school that would play short hitters that sounds nearly identical and repeat. Music style and format were very consistent through. Pace varied occasionally. No real standouts but no real duds either, just pretty straightforward garage punk.

I don't mind aggressive songs in general, but this album just was a miss for me. Most of it was not very interesting to me. Some of the lyrics were decent, but a lot of the lyrics here were just lame. I think that punk is one of the worst subgenres of rock, and that's coming from someone who listens to a lot of rock. The guitarist barely plays anything besides power chords. At least some songs have interesting chord progressions, i will admit. The drums were definitely on point and constantly interesting, though; that was the main reason i didn't give a 1. I've reviewed nearly 60 albums and still haven't given a 1. I'm really not sure what it will take; most albums have at least some saving grace that prevents them from being a 1. Am I being too easy on them?

For those that aren't into punk...it's a short album :) For me, I think it is pretty decent. Nothing that I am interested in listening to often, but when the mood is right, this will do the trick. A lot of the songs, kinda sound the same, but they really aren't... but they seem to be.... 2.5 / 5

Ok 14 songs and a grand total of 15 minutes. I find this hard to appreciate . There are riffs.. the vocals are shouty. The lyrics are angry and rebellious. production is raw (yeah I know its supposed to be.) There is little to engage with. Don't get it....prob never will. 2.

One of the shortest albums on the list (maybe THE shortest?) at 15 minutes and 25 seconds, Group Sex goes by so quickly that one hardly has enough time to form an opinion on it. Lean, brutal, and full of the anger and uncertainty that many young people felt at the start of the 80s.

This got to the point where it felt like a parody of punk rock. Each song was like a minute long and each one felt like a string of transgressive and angsty lyrics set to intense guitars and drums. It was even complete with funny, raunchy song titles. Feels like the inspiration for Sex Bob-Omb from Scott Pilgrim.

Who doesn’t love a punk album that’s finished in quarter of an hour so you can get back to listening to Fela, Prince, Creedence or Steely Dan?! Well, not me when it feels like 15 minutes too much shouty noise. Gains a star for brevity and I think I heard one actual guitar solo!

High energy for sure. I appreciate the 68 second average song length. For such short songs, I’d expect then to sound more organized. I mean it’s punk so expecting organization is a bit to much. It sounds like a couple high school kids that had 14 song ideas and couldn’t fully develop any of them. Rock on, but I’ll pass.
