Reviews & Opinions

IRA ROBBINS/JACK RABID, THE TROUSER PRESS RECORD GUIDE, 1991: On their first album, this Southern California hardcore quartet adds such unexpected attributes as piano, dynamics and university-level lyrics to an otherwise traditional sore-throat- vocals/maximum-overioad-guitar sound. The well-recorded LP meets the minimum daily requirement of loud and fast rock without sacrificing basic human intelligence in the process.
