AllMusic Review by

Each song on this 30-track career retrospective of the Billy Childish-led Milkshakes is tough as nails. The guitars are loud, the drums are loud and the vocals are just this side of howling. Songs like "It's You" and "Seven Days" come ripping out of your speakers like heat lightning and even the rare ballad sounds angry. The Milkshakes are the rare garage rock revival band that sound just as nasty and unproduced as the bands who inspired them. Billy Childish would go on to get even angrier, tougher, and less melodic in Thee Mighty Caesars and Thee Headcoats, but this is where it all started. If you like your rock & roll lean, mean, and tough, this CD is right down your alley and parked in your garage.
