AllMusic Review by

By the time Die Kreuzen released Cement in 1991, the musical climate had begun to shift in their favor, as Nirvana was beginning to bring punk-influenced hard rock up the charts. It seems like it would have been a climate that would be more welcome to Die Kreuzen's proto-grunge rock and perhaps it would have been if the band had delivered a more exciting album. Although nothing about Cement is embarrassing, it lacks the spark of their earlier work and makes the band appear as if they were stuck in the '80s. True listeners will find a handful of worthwhile tracks, but Cement will not win Die Kreuzen any new fans.
