AllMusic Review by

An amazing record from its first slashing note, this album from Loudness drummer Munetaka Higuchi lives up to the promise of its name and then some -- courtesy of Bow Wow's Kyoji Yamamoto, the fierce guitar attack, the overlapping, often clashing layers of distortion and feedback, and the outsized amplification to the various slides and bent notes are all offered with a singular purpose that's quite compelling in small doses. The album -- which is stronger in its instrumental tracks -- is certain to please fans of heavy metal who still have most of their hearing. How anyone else takes to his work is problematic, at best.
