"Morrissey was obviously in a good mood on the day of this recording. Morrissey's vocals, filled with his unmatched combination of angst, desperation, and joy, hearken back to the nostalgic heyday of Morrissey and The Smiths. The musicianship is superb. "Sing your Life" invites the listener to start dancing on the spot for only the joy to be alive. "My Love Life" is played with Morrissey's reserved abandonment that fans cherish. The recordings are all unique and unrepeatable gems that deserve to be part of every fan's collection."
Smashingly good Morrissey EP

"The only thing that I would change about this EP if I could would be to make it longer. Morrissey's renditions of these three great songs of his left me wanting to hear more of the same!Most EPs and CD singles have only one or two songs that you can't get on a regular album. "Morrissey at KROQ" has three different versions of three of his songs, versions that you can't find anywhere else. The style is unlike anything else that you will hear in Morrissey's other work. "KROQ" has a very old-style rock sound to it, with an old stand-up string bass on the bass line, while the other musicians are busy with newer harmonies. Especially on "Sing Your Life," the tempo is quite upbeat.This EP really gives us a side of Moz that you don't hear much of outside of his concerts."
Morrissey shines on this studio live set!

"Anyone who hasn't heard a live recording of "There is a place in hell for me and my friends" should hear this CD. It is arranged the same way as it was heard on the (old Johnny Carson)Tonight Show."
Pretty good, I remember it live

"I was listening to KROQ the day this was originally broadcasted. The CD is essentially three songs off "Kill Uncle" done with the rockabilly feel he was into at this time. I saw Moz and his band live several times during this period and the cd is a great reproduction of their live sound"
