English anarcho-punk band founded 1981 in Eltham, London and active until nowadays without stop. Despite my huge respect to Conflict and all anarcho / peace / punk-rock bands, Conflict has been never my favourite band strictly musical. Perhaps I like its debut from 1983 "It´s now to know who's is who", but in general the rest of albums I think are quiet "normals" and few original. But few months ago I discovered this "Conclusion" from 1993 and my opinion of Conflict's music has radically changed. This album has nothing to do with the rest of their discography. We deal about punk and hardcore, yes of course, but also with a lot of other styles such as: reggae, psychedelia, prog rock, avantgarde... even a little of experimental music. I don´t mean is an experimental album far from punk and difficult to listen to for the Conflict' s public, not at all. I simply try to explain this is a punk disc different, original and genuin. In fact, the surprise is such big that is difficult to believe this is a Confict album. For example apart de 4 typical rock ban instruments: drums, bass, guitar and voice. There are some sequences wih piano, keywoards, violins, etc. and like in another albums male / female voices. Aftet to listen to several times this "Conclusion", I ask me why nobody (includes me, myself) knowks this brilliant and excellent album? For me is no doubt the best Conflict album ever. One of the best 90s punk-rock albums and finally a kind of Masterpiece in its genre.   10 / 10
