Ahhhhhhhh....Blackie is back! Crotch Rock for everyone! Blackie and Holmes make a great team. Pretty good disk, but their new cd Unholy Terror blows this one away.

From: J Scott Date: October 28, 2002 at 10:45
By far the weakest of any of the WASP CD's. But this is still better than most anything else out there.

From: Desslar Date: October 30, 2002 at 0:48
Very lightweight and somewhat repetitive, but still a lot of fun. What's up with that embarrassing monologue about Blackie's doodads? Pretty lame.

How do you get your keyboard to do that?

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 2, 2004 at 11:57
Looking back, this album is pretty dumb but after the horrid 'KFD' it was a relief to see Blackie getting back to basic, fast & furious rock & roll. Most of it hasn't held up with continued listening, but 'Dirty Balls' is still a hilariously juvenile number that's a worthy successor to the classic 'Animal (F**k Like A Beast)'... Fortunately the next couple of studio discs would outshine this one.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 2, 2004 at 14:15
I guess i better get with it and check out the latest from them, because I liked this cd a lot! Guess yer right, it was like 'fresh air' at the time. Will go look into 'Unholy Terror' on your recommendations...cheers 'cocaine cowboys', LOL

From: Date: March 30, 2004 at 6:28
Sounds alittle bit like Motorhead sort of style kind of sleasy lyrices just doesn't quite have the stomp factor of Blind in texas etc. but its still an excellent ablum it one dimensional but who cares, if all WASP albums were like this then I guess it might get boring but having one like this is excellent, fine tunes done well - dont think you will find a better example - no fillers for my money fav Damnation angels, high on the flames and helldorado. Worth the money just for the wicked laugh at

From: Big Mike Date: April 7, 2004 at 15:40
Quite simply, this disc is a frisbee. This album is so far away from the S/T WASP or crimson idol it makes your head spin. Although the WASP vibe is there, the songwriting just sucks the big one. The jewel case is the most valuable part of this CD. Buy any other WASP but this on trendsetters.

From: Blue Tequila Date: May 30, 2004 at 22:15
Just pulled this off the shelf after ignoring it for quite a while. Before it was released Blackie had said that WASP was going 'back to their roots' on this album. Well they tried anyway. It's almost as if they had The Last Command playing in the background while putting this album together. 'Cocaine Cowboys' sounds just like 'Fistful of Diamonds'. The songs are pretty weak though with lots of repetition. I've avoided WASP albums ever since but I might have to look for 'Unholy Terror'.

I can deal with the cheese, and the repetition, and the 'going back to our roots' thing. I expect a certain level of crap from WASP, and I still love 'em, but this production sucks more than anything has ever sucked before. Pretty much unlistenable as far as I'm concerned, and I REALLY wanted to like it...

From: Scott Date: July 29, 2004 at 12:40
The lyrics on this disc are the worst that Blackie has come up with yet. I mean, vile for viles sake. I suppose Blackie is trying to bring back the shock aspect of the band, but with such an arsenal of good CDs behind them, it just comes off as stupid. Spinal Tap was suppose to be a joke, yet Blackie offers songs such as 'Dirty Balls' and 'Don't Cry (Just Suck)' that take Spinal Tap sexual idiocy to epic proportions. Too bad cause the music is quite good.

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 20:48
Some nice moments, but gets boring. Then mor boring. Then a bit of light and back again. 6/10

From: Rycheage Date: August 9, 2004 at 22:59
This starts out cheesy and gets real moldy real fast. This is the worst album they put out. Blackie & co. have much more talent than this. Like Scott said, vile for vile's sake. The production is real weak too. It is just bad....

From: Raiven Date: March 7, 2005 at 19:26
Underrated, If you like W.A.S.P. for the charm of the early albums you'll probabaly like this alot more than if your fav W.A.S.P. album is Crimson Idol 7.5/10

From: poproxx2007 Date: December 22, 2005 at 23:41
I understand there was a need to go back to the whimsicle side of the band since the KFD misfire but nothing spectacular here. Some of the songs could of been Electric Circus B-Sides but you can tell Blackie was trying to go back to a simpilar approach. Nothing on the brilliant level of Crimson Idol or Still Not Black Enough.

From: Aussie Dave Date: December 26, 2006 at 19:41
Probably WASP's weakest album. For me it's too much like a bad AC/DC cd. However, there are some fantastic songs on here such as 'Damnation Angels', 'Dirty Balls' and 'High On The Flames', but the rest i can give or take it. After this album they went back to the old WASP sound which was a good move. Just too many fillers on this album, so hard to recommend unless a die hard WASP fan. 6.5/10.....

From: Scrounger Date: July 22, 2008 at 11:56
W.A.S.P.'s worst album, even though there's some damn good songs on here and it was an attempt to return to the sound of the early demos. "Damnation Angels", "Dirty Balls" and the title track stand out, everything else sounds exactly the same and this cd is almost completely crippled by awful production (sorry Blackie!). I still like this album, but I don't play it alot.

From: kai-2 Date: October 30, 2008 at 20:10
A simple, straight-forward hard rockin' album which reminds me of the early Pre-WASP/Sister demos, completely different from the experimental "Kill Fuck Die". The biggest problem I found in this CD is the lack of variation between the songs, some of them seem to sound the same, which makes this album quite boring. The best songs are "Helldorado", "Damnation Angels" and "Dirty Balls".

From: Metal T Date: November 10, 2008 at 15:17
'Damnation Angels' & 'Cocaine Cowboys' alone were worth the price of admission,but like others have correctly suggested this probably wasn't one of Blackie's better production jobs-needed a little more thump in the sound.Songwise it was the typical old-style W.A.S.P. raunch as usual-but what the hell like an earlier comment stated 'Helldorado' still was better than a heckuva lot of what was out at the time.

From: pie75 Date: August 22, 2010 at 7:03
ok firstly i wanted an old school wasp album and i got it the production was a little lame though kind of ac/dcish in a couple of tracks don't cry just suck and dirty balls c'mon people where's your sense of humour they made me laugh straight away damnation angels is clearly the best song here and high on the flames is great too it's a fun yet silly album and refreshing after that kill fuck die crap haven't listened to anything after this though but i'll get around too it as i've read good reviews on the one's afterwards

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 27, 2011 at 17:39
Great rocking album by the mighty Blackie Lawless and C.o. ...definitively Wasp is a music brand..their music is recognize miles away...i'm talkin'even without the voice of Lawless in it...an amazing band... still..."Helldorado","Damnation Angels","Dirty Balls","Can't Die Tonight" & the reprise "Hot Rods To Hell" are killer songs that will rock you endlessly...91/100
