By far their best, now even better with the bonus tracks!

"I remember hearing the song "Dirty Weapons" on some metal compilation and I just thought, what a great song. I had to check out more of the Killer Dwarfs. I remember seeing a video on MTV years and years ago where I think his name is Russ is in box being bounced around town. I can't remember the song but a very interesting video. I never saw it again. Needless to say label support was lacking with this band. That is why they didn't get the video rotation or airplay back then. Evidence is this here album or should I say CD. The material on this is strong rock and even contains a power ballad, "Doesn't Mattter", a prerequisite in the 80's hair band days. The band liked it so much they released it again on the "Method To The Madness" CD, the era from where this recording hails. Anyway let's get to the music.
1. Dirty Weapons 10/10. Just fantastic
2. Nothin' Gets Nothin' 9/10 Great riffs
3. All That We Dream 9/10 Great beat
4. Doesn't Matter 8/10 I am not a huge power ballad fan but a good song nonetheless.
5. Last Laugh 8/10 a good rocker
6. Comin' Through 10/10 Another of the big songs from this release.
7. One Way Out 9/10 very good song that keeps the momentum up
8. Appeal 7/10 one of the weaker songs
9. Not Foolin' 9/10 more great riffs
10. Want It Bad 9/10 great closer
Most if not all of these songs have catchy chorus and just meaty guitar riffs. Very underrated album from the 80's. but wait. There is more. 5 BONUS TRACKS from the "Method To The Madness" CD. Not nearly as good of an album but the 2 best tunes are included here in "Method To The Madness" & "Cowboys And Conmen". The other 3 tracks are competent enough but "Dirty Weapons" the CD was still their best release. Check it out and see if you don't agree with me. The Bonus tracks just help make this an even better CD. Recommended for all fans of 80's metal."
Spectacular rock gem!

"This record is really good!!! I wore out my cassette back in the 90's so I had to buy it on disc. Very underrated band that were talented and made really fun, rock music. Dirty Weapons, Last Laugh, Coming Through(my ode to the liberals), Not Foolin and Want it bad are just some of the gems here. A must buy. It should've sold at least 5 million, easy. Oh well, I bought it and that's all that matters. I'm happy and you will be too, so get it, now. This is one of the last real good metal records to come out before the horrible grunge sound ruined it all. This is a must have. Buy it, crank it up and grab a cold one...rock on. Go Dunk!!!"
