"Five years after recording their amazing debut album and promptly self destructing, the Adolescents reunited and recorded this collection of new and old songs. Some are good and some are just plain weird. "She Wolf" is a mutant Alice Cooper meets the Damned and gets drunk on Jim Morrison's grave Hammer House of Horror type epic which leaves your average skateboard riding punk fan dumbfounded. Their version of the folk standard "House of the Rising Sun" retains the original female gender narrative which, sung by the prematurely world-weary Tony Montana, adds sort of a Santa Monica Blvd. perspective to it."
This was a little slower

"Their are some good songs on this album, but it's a little slower than the blue album. I thought a great funny song was She wolf. it sounds like a couple song at the beginning but then it gets better and faster. I know a lot of people won't agree with me on this one but I think in a way they were kind of gothic and creepy for a punk band because of their songs about children and stabbing each other as a game and so forth. but I thought they were cool anyways."
Good ol' punk

"I like this gritty punk rock it's good at what it's there for and thats raising issues which are mainly political or tend to be alot of the time and they where nothing but a straight out good punk band which is something so if your looking for some good ol' punk to boost the morale of your cd collection then this is the album that you should pick as its nitty, gritty and there to have a good listen to everynow and again. I think that the adolescents where one of the better punk bands for the time they where around aswell and where better than the descendents in my opinion, i liked the style in which they played it was as if they just got up recorded an album and just came out with the lyrics and the music off the top of there heads."
If you don't know The Adolescents...

"Then you don't know what punk rock is. This isn't their finest effort because you can't beat the blue album, but it is well worthy of purchase."
