Still profane, but rocking out better
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The second album by the Fugs is a marked improvement over their first album. The playing is tighter and the executions are a bit more polished (God forbid!!) "Dirty Old Man", "Kill For Peace" and "Doin' All Right" are hilarious songs. Here is an example: "I'm not ever gonna go to Vietnam. I prefer to stay right here and screw your mom." The Fugs also prove that they can rock out with abandon such as "Frenzy" and "Group Grope". This CD gets no points for sound quality though. Be prepared for relatively low fidelity. The lyrical content contains the same sexual innuendos and profanity as the first album."
Good, but the Fugs First Album is better

"This album sounds like the Fugs actually tried to pretend they were a real band, instead of a spontaneous gathering of hilarious nutjobs, like they sound on the first album. This album sounds a lot more studio than the first, but as a result, the songs sound like real songs instead of like unscripted mehem, like the first. And as "real bands" go, the Fugs aren't really the greatest.
That said, the album is still fun and there are some good songs, particularly "Kill for Peace," which sounds as topical today as when it was recorded. "Virgin Forest" and "Mutant Stop" are also quite good."
Pre-punk? I believe...

"listen up, The Fugs combined political satire, garage rock trash, and enough sexual innuendo to keep the right wing up at night. At one point, the group had an FBI file! I call 'em pre-punk due to the execution of their ideas; they played with wreckless abandoment. Sure, they don't have the sonic power of The Stooges, The Sonics, or MC5. But they blazed a path and left satire, innuendo, and some anger in their wake.
Check out their first LP, the song Nothing left me in a trance for days.
