"This CD is hilarious. The classic song is obviously 'Punk Rock Girl' but there are so many other songs on this release that are just as good like 'Smoking Bananna Peels', 'Bleach Boys', 'The Guitar Song'. The bands sngwriting often gets me wondering 'how do they think up this stuff?' As far as the musicianship, I can not think of any other band that has a similar sound to the Dead Milkmen, which is always good. The best way to describe their sound would be punk tuned down a notch. To me, this is their best release. If you are in a down mood, put this one on-it will get you to smile."

"If you had to pick just one essential Milkmen album from their prestigious catalogue, a lot of people would have to go with this one. With an impressive 17 songs, this album gives a taste of all that the Milkmen did best. From Rodney Anonymous' brilliant story-telling on "Stuart," to Joe Jack Talcum's pop-punk sensibilities on "Punk Rock Girl" and "The Guitar Song," to their unique mix of these elements on "I Walk The Thinnest Line" and "Bleach Boys," you really get it all. Virtually every track is a Milkmen classic, which is saying something. If you want a solid intro to this band, get this one; if you already like the Milkmen but somehow don't have this, have your head checked. This album is the definitive road to a magical world where ministers murder golf pros and Ringo finally buys a rifle, and it is not to be missed!"
For awhile, the milkmen rocked

"I rarely write reviews, but when I saw the amazon "what the critics say" I had to punch in. The Dead Milkmen were a great band because of, not in spite of, exactly what they were: smart, snotty and damn funny kids. No, they're not as seminal as Black Flag, Minor Threat, X, etc, but then again when you look at all the tongue in cheek pop-punk thats come out in the last few years, with bands like Green Day and that weak band that penned "fly for a white guy"--pass some of the proceeds to the Milkmen, god knows they could use it. As for this particular record, its solid and good--I prefer Eat Your Paisley and Big Lizard in my Backyard, but any of those early records are well worth your moneyHell, the song "Stuart" by itself is worth the price of admission!"
