AllMusic Review by

Never one to mince words, Warrior Soul frontman Kory Clarke made no bones about the fact that the band's fourth album Chill Pill was an intentionally lackluster album, put together for the sole purpose of terminating their relationship with the DGC label. You can't argue with honesty and truth to word, Clarke's songwriting barely registers a pulse throughout the album. Its entire first half (kicked off in typical Warrior Soul fashion by an angry psycho-babble rant set to music entitled "Mars") rolls by without a single memorable moment. And despite containing a few flashes of inspiration towards the end ("Concrete Frontier," "&Soft"), a cameo appearance by ex-Hanoi Rocks singer Michael Monroe on saxophone and harmonica ("Ha Ha Ha" and "High Road," respectively) remains the album's most interesting feature. Definitely one to avoid.
