Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #14, JULY 1984: On this album, the EFFIGIES continue to develop musically, though not everyone will view this development positively. The material here is pretty diverse. Most of it has a post-punky feel and emphasizes Earl's metallic guitar playing; only a few songs are in the traditional EFFIGIES vein ("Patternless", "Rather See None", etc .). I personally prefer these latter, but the other cuts have grown on me with repeated listens.
