The mighty Dread Zep's finest hour

"This album is a great listen from beginning to end.
My favourite on here has got to be "Unchained Melody".
The Elvis-Zeppelin-Reggae formula was applied to disco music on the previous DZ effort, "It's Not Unusual", which was an interesting idea but was hurt by the absence of Tortelvis. However, the idea of applying the Elvis-Zeppelin-Reggae formula to songs that are not originally Elvis, Zeppelin, or Reggae, was a good one and it's explored a little further here and it works extremely well with "Unchained Melody". The Zep tunes such as "Hot Dog" and "All of My Love" come off really well here. A real standout is "Kashmir". This album has good momentum and plays really well all in succession, probably moreso than any of their others. I saw them several times on this tour....what a great group to watch and listen to. I truly believe their charm goes further than just their gag, which is important, because gags get old. Long after the gag is no longer funny, this disc is a great listen. The playing and the clever arrangements are just so terrific."
I am pretty hungry.

"This was the fourth album by Dread Zeppelin. While it is enjoyable, it isn't as good as their previous albums. Maybe the joke was wearing thin at this point, but there just aren't as many laughs this time around. The songs are as well played as ever, but it's not quite as funny. Still, fans of Dread should enjoy it."

"This album reminds me of the days before the internet. In the early nineties, Dread Zeppelin had a busy fan club which sent out a newsletter and allowed me to buy a few cool colored vinyl 45's. This album came out in '93. Back then Dread Zeppelin had a broader tour schedule. I saw them in Columbus, Ohio at that time, but starting sometime between the last five and ten years they never ventured beyond the West coast. Their cover songs have always been my favorite and this CD has the best one..."The Ballad of Charlie Hodge." The middle part of this song uses the power chords from the Won Ton Song and goes into the familiar Heartbreaker guitar break. It never gets old."
