The Hamilton rockers double your pleasure with a reissue of their first two LPs.

This came out in 2001 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


The new album from Hamilton heavyweights Sector Seven is actually two old ones.

The fittingly named Dual brings together the hardcore quintet’s first two albums — 1997’s Comfort Zone and ’99’s Along the Way — in one hard-hitting, no-frills package. Those two adjectives also do a pretty fair job of describing the band’s sound, which skates between Offspring’s propulsive pop-punk (vocalist Jon Gauthier’s voice soars snottily just like Dexter Holland, especially on the earlier tracks), Bad Religion’s intelligent anthems and the turbocharged hardcore power of Pennywise. If you missed out the first time, Dual is the perfect chance to catch up with Sector Seven.
