"If you love the Winter brothers, real R&B/rock fusion, DO NOT buy this album! Whenever the late, nowhere-near-great Liar Ron Bubblebrain put out any book, the Scientologists were ORDERED to go buy them by the hundreds, because, basically, they SUCKED and no one who was not a Scientology brain-slave would ever consider them as decent (or even passible) literature. Hubbard's scripture, "Dianetics: A Science of Mental Diarrhea," was more of the same: Really idiotic science by a really lousy author; and idiots pay MILLIONS to learn what basically is a bad scifi fantasy by a pathetic, lying idiot with delusions of grandeur. As with the infestation of Christianity into perfectly-viable Pagan societies, what Scientology gets ruined, cheapened and ultimately destroyed---or should I say, remaindered. I shudder to think that a man so brilliant as Winter has become a Scientology dimwit, but Bob Dylan became a Fundy Christian; maybe they've been eating lead paint or something.
I strongly suspect that the "glowing" review listed below was written by a Scientologist slave. If you really want the low-down on this stupid, fake "religion," check out lermanet on the web; and you don't have to surrender your soul to do it.
Meanwhile, do NOT listen to this crappy mess OR watch John Travolta's "Battlefield Earth" while smoking marijuana: You're liable to hurt yourself LAUGHING!"

"Watch out - if you like to "come out at night", best stay away from this "mission". This sounds like some of the earlier pop Prince projects- but they are better. I picked up the cassette of this album for a quarter - and still question if I got my moneys worth! While Edgar has always had a more commercial lean than brother Johnny, he still has my respect as a school of rock professor. You can find a decent sax solo or two on this recording, maybe. But overall, this is a concept project album, and contributes little musically to the Winter cataloge."
Mostly silly, but it has its moments

"I've only just started reading the book so I don't get all the lyrics, if they're related to the book.
The music is very uneven. There are one or two somewhat catchy songs with good musical arrangements, for example the first two songs. Some of the songs are just plain bad, like "Bang-Bang" and "Just A Kid". "Joy City" is somewhat catchy and the lyrics are so awful it's funny. It's also hilarious that it sounds like they're playing table tennis. The whole song is so silly it's funny.
Most of the album works on a "campy" level because it's so over-the-top and silly, or just to listen to as background music, but it's not "good". Buy it only if you find it at a cheap price."
