Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #16: AUGUST 1984: These little imps from west of the swamplands have come up with a really dense, "live" two-guitar sound here. Recorded while the band was in their underwear, they still manage to thrash wildly, humorously, and sarcastically. In the process, they prove without a doubt that there's more great items than pizza in the Garden State.

IRA ROBBINS, THE TROUSER PRESS RECORD GUIDE, 1991: "Middle-aged Whore" on Wacky HI-Jinks was, as noted on the back cover, "recorded in our underwear." Musically, however, A. O.D. is no joke, a fact immediately apparent from "A.O.D. vs Godzilla," the killer stun-guitar instrumental that opens the album. Unfortunately, muddy production buries mediocre vocals spewing funny, satiric lyrics in fuzzy speedrock, leaving incisive numbers like "White Hassle" (alienation at the Castle) and the sketchy "Rock & Roll Gas Station" half of what they might have been.
