When the entertainment ends

"This is local cowpunk from a band that usually does better. Singer Ron House (local record store owner and punk veteran) annoys many people with his whiny, you-thought-Jello-Biafra-was-bad vocals--but this is the first time he ever started annoying me, too. And the usually terrific slashing, sloppy guitar work of Bob Petric is mostly wankery here (ironic wankery, but wankery nonetheless). Only things really listenable are "Half Off," a great little ballad Ron's been doing solo for a while, and "When the Entertainment Ends," a smart potshot across the multimedia bow ("When the entertainment ends/That's when the fun begins"). Don't wanna bash a great band for a bad disc, though--their earlier effort, "Bait and Switch," is among the best releases of the '90s. Yeah, by anyone. Why Ron House isn't in Garth Brooks's shoes, I don't know. Bet he even has a suitable belt buckle.--J. Ruch"

"This is a great album, regardless of what John Ruch says. I am a huge fan of the Slave Apartments and this disc is not a disappointment. "Rump Government" and "Lightening Rod" are two of their best songs yet. It's a shame they are no longer together, they were one of the best bands in Columbus."
