Originally released as two vinyl discs, the conclusion of the second consists of a live show in Islington the summer of 1979, with the band tearing through new and old cuts with passion, including such fierce anthems as "Do They Owe Us a Living?" and "Shaved Women. The studio tracks, including versions of some cuts from the live show, all come from a one-day session four days after the concert, and while some tracks are almost fragments, surprisingly things aren't as constantly monochrome or as rushed as one might think.
Crass’s Stations of the Crass is far from without flaw. At times it lingers on uninteresting jokes or experimentation that falls flat altogether. The composition of the music is at time entirely lackluster and uncreative; sometimes totally lazy. Like many hidden gems the experimental and artistic sides of the album are the easiest segments to overlook and also some of the most key players. Crass created both a groundbreaking and befuddling beast with this one; its depth can easily be written off due to its childish displays. For these same reasons it will/has been embraced lovingly. Love it or leave it, anarchy and freedom is what Crass wanted.
