AllMusic Review by

Being dubbed as "The House of Faith Years," this record documents the Swingin' Utters' work that was recorded at the studio under the same name between 1991-1993; hence, a lot of this material was previously released on vinyl, including their first EP (Gives You Strength) and the Scared mini-LP (released as Johnny Peebucks & the Swingin' Utters). The usual street-smart, pub-drinking, 1977-influenced punk can be found on here, including an exciting, unreleased Stiff Little Fingers cover of "Here We Are Nowhere." Unfortunately, a lot of this falls under the categories of redundant and boring at times. All in all though, More Scared is a pretty handy package featuring out-of-print and hard-to-find material; but at the same time, one could understand why everything found on here has been unavailable for so long.
