GG Allin's most intimate record

"As a GG Allin fan, I was disgusted to see such poor reviews given to one of his best works. To the simple-minded who believe GG was an extremist showman, this album seems like rambling over a bunch of incoherent guitars. But anyone who listens more closely will realize that this is GG's most intimate album ever; the only one that truly captures his riotous mind. This piece of art is comparable to Hamlet and Crime and Punishment in terms of the chaos and disorder it puts down, and is easily a must for anyone who appreciates good art."

""Self-Absorbed." "Die for Two." "The Leading Man." Fans of G. G. Allin's poetry are as familiar with these titles as fans of Emily Dickinson are with "I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died." When Allin decided to do a spoken-word CD, he went full-bore, recruiting Pittsburgh ominous-hardcore outfit Shrinkwrap to do the musical honors. Few bands' music could underline the anger and violence latent in Allin's words the way Shrinkwrap does. Where Allin's musical compositions lean towards (okay, are fully immersed in) the juvenile, silly, and generally "I worte it for the shock value," his poetry gives a glimpse into the mind and soul of one of America's most individual-- and brilliant-- minds. _War in My Head/I'm Your Enemy_ is absolutely essential Allin."

"One would think a collaboration between G.G. and Shrinkwrap Progaganda, the East coast's premier noisemongers, would be a can't miss. But it is and it does. The CD consists of one track, featuring some of G.G.'s observations about how much he hates society and how intensely he lives his own life, backed by Shrinkwrap's sterility-inducing sounds (and I mean that in a good way!). The thing of it is, though, with G.G. you expect clear flowing melodies, and that surely isn't the case here. Potential new G.G. fans steer clear! I love G.G. Allin, but I don't like this CD. Does anybody?"
