"When you discover a band that's been around for awhile, it's often common to find their first album lacking a little something. Maybe it's too raw or doesn't yet contain that element that drew you to the band in the first place. Not so with TMGE. This is their 'roots' record, where they explore all facets of rock and pop. No riff or cliche is left untouched, from muscular Who-inspired power chords to hilarious Beatles harmonies. This album is definitely not as ferocious as their later records, but it is an absolutely crucial step in the formation of the TMGE sound. It is also just a terrific record in it's own right. As usual, I don't know what they're singing about, but it rocks just the same. Highly recommended."
