Check out some of the early web reviews that the album has received.
"So, there's no decent rock bands in the UK you say ? Well, nobody seems to have told the chaps at Gut Records who've managed to hand pick 41 of the coolest bands on the UK circuit and put them on this double CD. Yep, you read correctly, 41 bands. And what better way to open it up with the fantastic Mahumodo and the stunning Sikth ?
It gets better though as this CD showcases the best of the talent trawling around the UK circuit as we speak. I don't mean your Lostprophets and your Hundred Reasons, nope these are bands that have absolutely no cash and no big labels supporting them. Bands like Murder One, Jarcrew, Johnny Truant and Labrat have a work ethic that involves playing every shit venue in every shit British town and then doing it again a month later. Word of mouth is what has got these bands the respect they deserve today and now it's time somebody in a suit sat up and took notice. Although, a quick scan down the list of bands on this compilation and you can pick out the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Million Dead and The Blueprint as just a couple of the bands who are surely destined to make the step up to bigger and better things
Compilation CD's are usually a hit and miss affair but, as a summary of what is going on in the UK at the moment, Louder Than The Crowd is a pretty diverse collection which touches on all bases from the rockier bands like Rueben to the downright brutal sludge of bands like Charger and shows that UK rock is stronger than it has been for years!"
