"This was the last real studio album from the Dead Milkmen (unless the gods bless their fans and these guys who write so well together get back together) and it's a good one...one of their best. Their later albums grew less punk and even more humorous. Here the Dead Milkmen's comic genius works on many different levels that'll bring many smiles.If you're looking for great DM albums, skip the compilations and go for: Bucky Fellini, Beelzebubba, Metaphysical Graffiti, Not Richard, But Dick and Stoney's Extra Stout."
One of the milkmen's strongest albums!

"I don't understand the bad publicity surrounding this album; it is funny, well-paced, and musical. In fact, I'd argue that this is their strongest release next to Metaphysical Grafitti & Not Richard But Dick, and their strongest in terms of sheer musicality. If you are a teeny-bopper that likes raw punk, then you won't like this album; if you are someone who can appreciate the evolution and maturation of a band over the years, then this album is for you. "Peter Bazooka" remains one of the cleverest Dead Milkmen tracks ever, and Khrissy, I can't stay awake, and Big Deal are amazing in their own right. Don't let the sour-pusses deter you from a great album; This is one I've listened to at least 50 times all the way through - there is a lot of good stuff here, for those able to realize that the Dead Milkmen are more than a angsty-punk band."

"This album IS great. Throughout the years, people have tried to tell me that this album is nothing compared to the dead milkmen's older material. They are wrong. The music that is portrayed in this album reflects thier musical influence at the time. Do we really want to hear another band of thirty year old men trying to sing the way they did in high school? No! This album is great. It has all the elements that a fan would want. However, if you are new to the dead milkmen, I would recomend an older milkmen album, or a collection cd(cream of the crop or death rides a pale cow)."
