Misery - Next Time 7" (1995)
While a lot of the crust/anarcho punk that I dug in high school has, over time, revealed itself to be laughably unlistenable, I'll always back this 7", one of the first vinyl purchases I ever made. The title track, a eulogy to a deceased friend, is IMO one of the greatest crust recordings of all time, and could serve as the perfect primer for the genre; it's dirty, driving, passionate, raw, and heavy -- everything crust should be. The other two tracks can't quite keep up, but they're damn good, especially the dirge-like "Midnight".
