AllMusic Review by

Not to be confused with the Broken Glass that recorded a vinyl LP for Capitol in 1975, this Broken Glass recorded for Chrysalis 15 years later. The two bands do have one thing in common: neither were well known by any means. A Fast, Mean Game, the only album this band recorded for Chrysalis, favors a groove-oriented, bluesy approach to hard rock and arena rock. Broken Glass wasn't the most distinctive or original band in the world, and most of the tunes on this predictable album are mediocre, contrived and less than memorable. Still, the CD has its moments. "Worst of You Yet" and "Long Way Home" are kind of catchy, and the rowdy "Mexico" has a nice bar band appeal. But all things considered, A Fast, Mean Game isn't worth the price of admission.
