Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #42, NOVEMBER 1986: On the faster tunes here, I don't think this latest version of Wattie and Co. do as well as before, but on the more adventurous tunes, they come off very well, with a fuller sound. They can still put out some good sounds, as hard as that is to admit.

NOTHIN' SEZ SOMETHIN BLOG: The Jesus Is Dead EP by stalwart Scottish punk rockers The Exploited is very likely the most solid release the band ever put out. Four savage, thrashing tracks about politicians, imperialism, religion, drugs, & issues with law enforcement. Production-wise, this is the best the band has ever sounded: the drums are loud, the bass has punch, guitars are wailing, & Wattie's legendarily indiscernible vocals are loud, upfront, & largely understandable. Although the songs are simple & straightforward, there is some great songwriting here. You may be pleasantly surprised to find how well Wattie & the Exploited's brand of sincere, hard-working punk stands the test of time.

Additional Notes

The US version also came in a censored edition: this had a plain black die-cut stickered sleeve, and the title was amended to ".... .. Dead".
