I just bought the new re-release of this super sweet album and thought the following quote from Punk Rock World, Italy was cool.

"After the huge success of "JUST ONE" released on Revelation Records in August of 97 Roadrunner Records basically forbid Ray Cappo (YOUTH OF TODAY, SHELTER) from releasing "VALUE DRIVEN" (BETTER THAN A THOUDAND, 2cd full length) for fear of it over shadowing SHELTER and thus hurting the money they invested in the project.
So Ray, like any good hardcore singer, bootlegged his own record. Now that the first 5000 copies are sold and Ray and Supersoul have officially severed all ties with Roadrunner Records, Supersoul has officially re-released "VALUE DRIVEN". BETTER THAN A THOUSAND are proof that old school Hardcore alive and well. "

killer disc, killer buy.

XXXX out of 5 X's

better than a thousand ? i don't know. but it would be cool to have a boxed set of all Rays' bands...although the shelter releases alone would make that a massive collection of discs.
