"I saw the 15th Anniversary concert at the Mercury Lounge in New York City this last Sunday and hearing Earth vs. The Wildhearts performed live further reinforced what a great album this is, was and will always be. I love this band, loved this concert and appreciate every day that I get the chance to listen to the music of the Wildhearts or Ginger in any of his many incarnations. The music is raw and polished, it rocks from start to finish, meanders at points but pays off in the end, makes you laugh and think. I would never make comparisons, but it has the kind of edginess that Guns n' Roses first album had, the kind of energy the first Ramones record had and the lyrical/melodic style of bands that had been around for years. I recommend you see this band live; it is rare that they play in the States, but make the trip. Buy the records, all of them you can get, trust me a bad Wildhearts CD is better than most bands. After you are hooked on this band, spread the word, let everyone know and maybe after 15 years make this band an overnight sensation."

"Earth Vs. The Wildhearts is a hard rock gem. The songs have anger and humor and seem to remain very catchy."
The Greatest Rock 'n Roll Album of the '90's

"Yes, I know that it's long overdue, but I had to add to the accolades for this incredible album. I've been a Wildhearts fan for over ten years now, and this is one of their best. The songs are all extremely well-written blasts of sonic pleasure that somehow merge the best of metal, punk, rock and pop together for an amazing sound unlike any other band - then or now. Melodic, even sing-along tunes, that all possess tight harmonies and rhythms.
I won't bore anyone with my subjective take on the individual songs, but I have to say that if you're into melodic metal, with a heavy dose of punk and power pop, then you owe it to yourself to get this album. It's that good."
