From: HG Date: February 16, 2002 at 20:26
This one let me down. Not really glam-sounding. Not what you'd expect from the band photo.

From: TIM Date: April 29, 2002 at 12:48
These guys are okay if you're truly desperate for something to listen to. I pretty much agree with HG on this one.

From: abdullah Date: December 23, 2002 at 20:57
These guys were excellent, IMO. They were from Seattle and featured one of the members of Love Battery. I guess they had a pretty wild reputation for grungey Seattle and a few of them had problems with the needle. This is heavier and grittier than most glam bands with a definite punk egde, almost owes more to the Stooges or the Stones. I love this CD.

From: MButt Date: March 23, 2003 at 2:46
I usually am not this negative on a 80's hair band but wow, very disappointing!

From: Dean Date: January 18, 2004 at 16:29
It's pretty sad when i was actually relieved when my tape player ate this. Not at all what you would expect from the photo. A review i read for it said they were similiar to Faster Pussycat. That's like saying Nelson sounds like Slayer.

From: TIM Date: January 18, 2004 at 17:24
LMAO. Funny comment you made there Dean. Yeah, it's bad when you're happy the tape player ate it, but you can be even more certain if MButt dislikes it. He likes everything. Usually, if you hate it- he'll buy it. LOL. Someone call Guiness.

From: Dean Date: February 27, 2005 at 0:11
Well, i kind of reobtained this by accident-it was in a lot of cds i purchased and it really wasn't as bad as i first thought-still not great but not totally awful either. Worth a listen if you can get it for a buck or two.

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 5:56
This is a mess. I must say I was also amused by Dean's first comment and I only wish by CD player had been as generous and ate my copy of this. If you like boring, sort of bluesy hard rock like Quireboys or the like you might dig this, but I'd recommend it's best left avoided.

From: Leykis101 Date: November 24, 2009 at 4:07
A phenomenal album, layered dripping vocals, sturdy songs, cutting edge melodies, probably my 2nd favorite album of all time, my first being Shooting Gallery! do yourself a favor and dont miss out on this gemm, im glad I didnt!

From: Auslander Date: November 7, 2020 at 2:37
To me, this album is like a mix of grunge and glam. Not as good as that sounds. I reckon it sounds like Mudhoney if they released a hard rock album. Not essential, but interesting release from Seattle.
