"It's hard to place your hands on such great albums these days, specially when you live in Spain. I heard from Shudder to think at a local TV show, it was their song 'X-French T-Shirt' from the 'Pony express record' album and I couldn't get it out of my head in the next two weeks. I bought the album right away and then this one, where I really discovered the band. Here you can find fresh, really impacting songs, for those who are a little tired of easy-listening. Shudder to think is that kind of band you need to hear over and over to really understand what they mean, but, be careful, cause once you start, it's very hard to leave it. Only one more thing, I wish they had more presence here in Spain cause those who have listened to them have loved it. Songs like Chocolate or Red House would easily go straight into mankind's memory but, hey! maybe that would spoil the charm of it all, maybe it's a band for a few (I don't care, who needs the masses?)."
One of the Best Early 90's DC Indie-Rock Albums

"It was the summer before my Senior year in high school (1991) when a friend played me the record FUNERAL AT THE MOVIES EP, and it quickly became the soundtrack for the next year. Nirvana were just hitting the mainstream, and several forgetful West Coast bands were imitating the grunge style, in effect causing the sound to become redundant and tired. Shudder to Think, therefore, provided a very welcome power-pop alternative, with a Zeppelinesque blend of in-your-face rock n' roll and whimsical melody and vocals. Dischord had already combined the EP with the 1990 LP TEN-SPOT,for the CD release, which was what I bought. The two records, similar in production and attitude, are certainly complementary - this is worth your money. Although many will disagree, I never particularly liked any of the band's earlier releases (too raw) or the major-label records which followed the Dischord record which followed this one: GET YOUR GOAT (1992) (the Sony stuff is too polished and soulless)."

"I am amazed at reading the reviews, how many people don't care for this album. In my opinion it is their best work. Yes it sounds raw, buts the beauty of it. It was released in a post-hardcore era, and shows the bands versatility."
