AllMusic Review by

Too often, Midwestern rock bands cannot escape being labeled Replacements clones, but the Afghan Whigs, although vocalist Greg Dulli was originally called a rougher Paul Westerberg, show on their extremely rare debut release that Midwestern rock doesn't necessarily have to overwhelm with its country influences. Although Big Top Halloween is sometimes too cluttered in its mix, the album delivers bits of beauty and evidence of the band's future brilliance.
