Reviews & Opinions

TROUSER PRESS: The pressure-cooking Decimation Blvd. (a Sweet joke), tidily co-produced by Hayden and Nitebob Czaykowski, bumrushes hardcore with a postdated Dolls/Stooges rock sensibility, sounding for all the world like the hellhound spawn of the Ramones, MC5 and Shadows of Knight. Hayden declares his disgust and self-loathing in such jovial dizbusters as 'I Don't Wanna Be This Way,' 'Glad to Be Gone,' 'Fooled Again' and 'You Better Keep Your Big Mouth Shut,' filling out the spectacular 14-song blur (a near-perfect 21 minutes in all!) with compulsory declarations of ennui ('Searching for Kicks,' 'I Can't Get No Action,' 'How Do You Work This Thing') that contribute mightily to the moving-violation fun.
