Thank Christ for the bomb review
philip jacquez | Seattle, Washington USA | 12/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having listened to the Groundhogs for twenty some years I feel qualified to say that this recording represents some of thier finest work. Tony Mcphee and co. present a collection of songs that utilize sarcasm, irony, and historic interpretation to create a dramatic social commentary on various topics. Especially on how governments can influence citizens to lay down thier lives in the name of patriotism, when what they are really doing is pure and simple manipulation of innocent people for thier own personal and selfish gains. It also speaks of trust and the caution that should be exercised when one person decides to trust another. The musical arrangements are typically unorthodox and uniquely original.And excellent.The musicianship is outstanding as is the norm for this group. Tony Mcphee deserves the accolades that other so called "superbands" receive regularly. This recording is "intellectual" which is probably why its value evades the minds of most rock fans. Mcphee is the "genuine" article when it comes to Hard Rock through his compositions, arrangements and musicianship. Anyone claiming to be a fan of hard rock music that is not familiar with this material is just fooling themselves. This is essential listening for anyone who appreciates excellence in this genre."

"To me, this is the start of the Groundhogs heavy period, culminating with Who Will Save The World. The cuts are heavily steeped in the blues but have an edge to them. My favorite cut was a song John Peel played a lot on his radio show (this from the liner notes and not personal knowledge) and that is Soldier. I see this album cover and automatically think of that song.

Tony, Pete, and Ken really rock! Highly recommended.

Groundhogs at their best.
