Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #9, OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 1983: It shouldn't be necessary to describe the U.K. SUBHUMANS' basic approach. Once again, their combination of semi-thrash tempos, peculiar guitar embellishments, and radical lyrics hits home, and in a 12" format, the production accentuates their power. There's a couple of turkeys on this record, but the roaring "Get Out of my Way" and the psychedelic "People are Scared" really stand out; "I Don't Wanna Die" is an O.K. Yank-style thrasher.
