AllMusic Review by

Here's one to get the joy circuits going -- 35 minutes of bent surf music, a tilted approach to the beach, boards, and brain death genre that manages to mix in some cheerful pseudo-psychedelia from time to time. The Mermen, a three-piece given to odd noises, filter their whammy bar madness through a layer of grunge for best effect on the guitar side of things, and wrap things up in the finish with a piece of floating psychedelia called "Brain Wash," but it's at heart the right stuff: surf music with a rollicking beat and a merry approach.
