The beginning of the end
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This EP began the decline of Tar. Once the band left Amphetamine Reptile for Touch & Go, it seemed like they lost focus. Gone was the stunning interplay of heavy, repetitive guitars and inventive drumming. Instead, the songs became much more straight-ahead and conventional. Sort of a lighter, more poppish Tar. Perhaps they decided to try to broaden their appeal in the wake of the commercialization of grunge.I recommend seeking out Tar's earlier stuff, especially JACKSON. Clincher just isn't that great, except for the cool pix of the aluminum-clad guitars on the cover."

"I just couldn't allow that one bad review to stand. This is a solid release and definitely is no "demise" of the band. Yes, "Jackson" was a great release, but I thoroughly enjoy the rest from their Touch & Go years. Besides, the track 'Dean Martin' has one of the most pleasing, yet still loud, riffs you'll ever hear. Very good, albeit short release."
