Reviews & Opinions

ROBERT CRISTGAU: At a moment when heavy metal's theoretical attractions--stubborn grass-roots loyalty and low-class aggression--are more potent than at any time since punk did it better, this junk miner's delight performs a real public service. Obscure tunes from Kiss, Bowie, even the Stones, that'll blast the cobwebs clean out of your brainpan. Now if only the boring parts of the concept didn't exude them right back. B+

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #19, NOVEMBER 1984: Somewhat disappointing, especially after such a long wait for a REDD KROSS R'n'R fix. Mostly all covers (STONES, BOWIE, KISS, etc ., etc .), the only real killer for me, the only composition with that of RK pizazz is the only original, "Linda Blair." Hey guys, don't wait so long for the next record -- and get back in your groove. Pin-Ups this ain't!
