"This would likely be considered to be more like an EP,or even like a maxi-single.Think I may even still have my vinyl copy of this release.Features two(2)versions of the title cut,'Animal(F**k Like A Beast)',think I like the live version better.Plus you get "Hellion" off of W.A.S.P.'s 1984 self-titled debut,their own version of "Show No Mercy"(NOT cover of the Nazareth song,like I first assumed)and their Mountain cover of "Mississippi Queen".Although I've heard better versions,this one is decent.A should-have CD single for fans of '80's metal."
Classic W.A.S.P. !

"At the time...this was the only way to get a copy of this song (Animal). So my rating is totally dependant on that.Now W.A.S.P. apparently has re-released their whole library and tons of extra tracks are on different CD's including this one, leaving this CD a bit redundant.Still, this is classic W.A.S.P., hard, raunchy, mean, and of course controversial. So controversial that their regular record company wouldn't put this song on their CD (hence..this release by a different one).Animal is a great tune, one that brings back fond memories of the battle between Rock and the PMRC.Hellion is my next favorite and while the recording isn't the best, it still rocks. Mountain's Mississippi Queen is covered on this and Blackie does it great justice!"
