"I happen to be a Religious Studies teacher in the UK who loves Pere Ubu, Rocket From The Tombs and this lot. God may not say the 'F' word in the Bible but he is quite into genocide (1 Samuel 15) and unaccountably wants to murder Moses in Exodus 4v22. In fact as Nick Cave has pointed out, the Old Testament is a wonderful example of violent literature. In summary, the previous reviewer is an ignorant idiot and if God is omnipresent I'm sure he appreciated the Cleveland scene and the mayhem this band contributed to it."
Some amazing stuff on this record

"The Electric Eels are the great self-destroying disappointments in the great field of self-destroying disappointments-- punk rock. This album is amazing, completely amazing. If you like Iggy Pop or any other good proto-punk... you have to get a copy of this. it's years ahead of its time and hasn't aged a bit... in fact, it's impossible to find music like this now. Once punk music became a genre, it was impossible to find noisy unaffected idiot-savants."
God, Indeed, does say f-you. On a daily basis, I might add.

"Music is okay, a little sloppy and rough. Not always in a really good way. BUT the idiot christian review got my blood boiling. The history of the christian church would truly validate the title of this album. I suppose throwing away leftover frozen embryos rather than saving peoples lives and hating homosexuals because of traits that they are unable to change are better things to worry about than genocide, torture and economic and military imperialism. I can't understand that ANYONE believes in this religion b.s. Don't worry about the earth being trashed and heated up, melting the polar icecaps. Hey, there's gays that want to get married. When you die, you rot. No heaven. No hell. That's it. A long dirt nap."

"Firstly, I have to agree with the writer of the last review, and am relieved that for once I agreed with an R.E teacher. You must be more open minded than the one who 'taught' me!Whatever your views on God's foul language may be this album rocks and is totally essential. 'Agitated' 'Cyclotron' 'Accident' and 'You're Full Of Something' are the most striking tracks here but nearly everything else is well worth a listen. There are one or two tracks that border the awful but everything else is totally brilliant. I totally reccomend this and/or 'Their Organic Majesty's Request'."
