"After some great initial albums, Cheech & Chong seemed to have started losing their magic touch with this album, and didn't quite recover in later years. There are still some great routines here, but for the first time a few boring and excessive tracks also found their way onto the album. "Championship Wrestling," although a sadly classic scene from everyday life, is fairly dull in both the right and left tracks where two different comedy routines happen simultaneously. "The Other Tapes," where a hospitalized motorcycle accident victim undergoes a painful examination, isn't much more funny than listening to a torture. "Hey Margaret," however, despite being very vulgar, has always struck me as very humorous, maybe because of the total abandon with which it is done. It's also a reminder of the greater freedoms of the early 1970s in the pre-Meese Commission era. "Black Lassie," based on the popular black pride song "Theme From 'Shaft'" from 1971, is pretty good also, as is the 1974 radio hit "Earache My Eye." The album's worth getting for its better routines."
Alltime comedy classic

"At camp, in 1978, my best friend brought a tape of this album. We must have worn it out by the time we left camp, and laughed our brains out time after time. "Championship Wrestling," is absolutely classic, no doubt. "Other Tapes," features a busted-up biker getting exactly what he deserves from a happy man of medicine. R. Zimmerman's testimonial is an all-too-real glimpse of the future for any smoker. "Earache my Eye,"--well, who hasn't lived that one before school or work? I'll get an earache the next time I want to skive off work. "Wake Up America" is funny as all get-out. Geraldo Rivera needed somebody to parody him, and still does. "Baby-Sitters," with the modern-day version of "Three Little Pigs," is another laugh-out-loud bit. never drink anything when playing this album--you may land in the E.R. for real, kids."
