Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #4, JAN/FEB 1983: Not one of the DK's finer moments. "Halloween" is too rock-orientated and makes me long for the MISFITS' song of the same name. "Holocaust' starts out like an art-damaged neo-psychedelic track on the WITCH TRIALS EP, then mercifully snaps into a fine old-type DK's punk song. Good lyrics as usual, but...

Additional Notes

'Halloween' is the sane version that appears on Plastic Surgery Disasters; 'Saturday Night Holocaust' is new.
