AllMusic Review by

Hard-working hard rock from a North Carolina band that has more musical and sonic smarts than you might figure from the dreadful band photographs. Lead guitarist L.A. Stubbs is an excellent player, bandleader K. "Duke" Miller knows when to back off from the throat-killing shrieking in favor of passable vocals, and somebody forgot that you're supposed to overdo the drum processing, so Johnny Scott's bar-band workhorse drumming has an unusually natural (and welcome) sound to it. No copycatting, no deliberate anthems, just a bunch of guys with an excellent hard rock debut.
