"Oh yeah, its also one of the greatest albums of the 90s, one of those CDs that must taunt Tipper Gore in her sleep. If it was as well known as 2 Live Crew, the PRMC would surely have gone on a campaign to have it banned. I remember when I bought this album when I was fourteen, a good year of my life was devoted to making sure my parents wouldn't discover it. Not so much for the lyrics, they probably wouldn't have done anything about that. Its the cover that would upset them. A classic pose (which the respectable folks at Amazon haven't displayed) of two naked chicks covered with blood and a little boy in the background holding what appears to be a bunny rabbit. This isn't a painting, but an actual photograph! As for the music itself, its so unbeleivably catchy. The lyrics are as offesive as anything GG Allin did (if not nearly as creepy), but its all done with a sense of humor (albiet a very very sick and deranged one most people won't appreciate). The vocalist Blag Jesus sings about statutory rape, how he wants to have sex (thats not the term they use) in the backseat of his car, and how he is angry at a girl who is afraid of AIDS. Yeah, its in really bad taste, but is a rocking and funny as hell. The "Surfing Bird" tribute in the middle of "Motherf^^ker" cracks me up everytime I hear it. The CD only lasts fourteen minutes with thirteen songs, and its always an adreneline rush when you listen to it. Try to sit still with this in rotation. As you can tell this isn't for everybody. If what you read interests you, you'll love this album. If what I describe in this review makes you sick to your stomach, the album will too. P.S., if you ever see these guys live, don't go to the bathroom, you'll miss their whole set!"
This album is only 11 minutes long

"There should be 1000 punk rock albums like this but there's probably only like 80.
Pretty swinging for 240 beats per minute. They're talented enough to make longer songs -- try "Detention Girl", which would be a whole EP's worth of ideas for some bands -- but instead of building up to a resolution they just explode right out of the gate. And then it's over. Premature ejaculation rock, if you will.
Which leads us to the cover, which is the real reason this sold 50x as much as "Horror Stories". See if you can get the vinyl (the CD is 2 minutes longer, by the way). Better still the 4 foot square promo poster."
Two thumbs up

"This is the long awaited reissue of the classic 1990 album of the same name. Contains some of the best raunchy punk of all time wrapped in the best cover art ever made. The Dwarves finest album. Hands down."
Cuts to the Chase

"There's something about a band that seemingly has nothing to live for but the music. And in the Dwarves case, it's high-powered punk, smack, crack, and doin' it doggy......and they don't give a F$@K who knows it. This is the cream of the crop in what I like to call sicko-punk.
For reference, these bands would complement this album nicely: The Mentors and The Meatmen."
