AllMusic Review by

This intense, melodic album combines punk energy and pop like nothing else ever to come from the hardcore haven of Orange County, CA. Singer and guitarist Greg Antista had a great voice and an unerring sense of pop dynamics, while bassist and vocalist Steve Soto had already proved his skills in Agent Orange and the Adolescents. Together with a tight-focus rhythm section, they turned out catchy punk-pop anthems that would have made this band famous if Johnny Bravo had been properly distributed and promoted. Alas, Doctor Dream released lots of records and had only a minimal promotional budget, so this excellent album is unjustly obscure.
