I have kind of a love/hate relationship with hardcore...I don't listen to a whole lot of it, save for a select few bands, but my area has a great hardcore community, and I've embraced that. I love the passion, commitment, and heart that these musicians put into their lifestyle (I call it a lifestyle because hardcore is much more than just a musical genre), and I respect them wholheartedly, but most of the time I just don't like the music.
Anyway, sorry for ranting, but my point is simply that this is one of the few recent hardcore releases that I actually really, really enjoy. It's different, it's diverse, it's passionate. It's good hardcore; which, in my opinion, is hard to come by these days.
