AllMusic Review by

Often compared to The Violent Femmes because of their acoustic primitivism, The Swamp Zombies are not nearly as mannered as Gordon Gano and his bunch. And while The Zombies don't make great LPs, they certainly make enjoyable ones, loaded with smarts, good tunes, and an attitude that is neither condescending nor too self-aggrandizing...From the comic LSD-tinged Bo Diddley tale ("Mr. Freako") to the very bright indictment of mindless hatred ("Denny's Incident"), The Zombies bop and strum with great feeling and vigor, tapping into the very au courant genre of neo-folk...
