While most revival groups get bogged down in retro posturing, the Martians' leader Evan Foster is too smart--and musical--for anything so limiting. The Boss Martians are one of the most entertaining new surf groups in their willingness to stray from pure surf, drawing on pop, exotica, lounge, and garage influences in a seamless way. 13 Evil Tales is their most fully-realized production to date as well. In addition to his other strengths, Foster is a fine guitarist, and this disc will find an eager home with any surf fan. Truly a standout record in an often-limited genre. --Skip Heller
Great Surf 60's style!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If the Beach Boys essence was ever transferred over to a modern surf band, it was hand-delivered to this fine band of Northwest kids (apparently they are grown up now and play killer rock 'n' roll...try THEIR "The Set-Up" CD).This CD has great sounds not heard since the heyday of surf and drag music (1963...before the Beatles killed it) with very good songwriting. Great singing and guitar playing, too.I recommend this CD for fans of surf, 60's sounds and rock 'n' roll in general."
Way better songs than previous release

"simply put this cd is cool. i heard 2 tracks from it on campus radio last year and i bought it at Rainy Day and i was NOT AT ALL disappointed. this album is better than their first and ALL original too - thats what i'm into more than anything - i cannot find their more obcure releases but from what i've heard this tops the first release pretty well. i bought a record player just so i could play their picture disc single from this album which kicks. i'm looking for the new record MOVE but I cannot find it anywhere for sale yet."
Could not keep my eyes open.

"This record is good for one thing and thats for people that have insomnia. I recomend Satans Pilgrims, or The Bomboras. I had to return this record."
