We gave it a B

New York’s Sick of It All may well be the only hardcore band that matters anymore, and Built to Last is proof. Like so many of their brethren, they’re ludicrously macho, cartoonishly furious, and preposterously melodramatic. Yet, paradoxically, they manage to overcome the genre’s bark-and-lunge cliches simply because they’re so archetypal; these guys can actually make you feel the fury behind a song called ”Us Vs. Them.”
