AllMusic Review by

There's not a lot to say about Princess Dragon Mom or their release, Fear of Evil, other than they (and it) are quite noisy. Probably more important are the associations that PDM have with the Detroit rock scene, as the members use PDM to exert their unwanted energy. Included in the group are Warn Defever of His Name Is Alive and Dion Fischer of the Go and Godzuki. This project marks a distinct separation from the members' other, more rhythmic and tuneful bands and acts as a declaration of their awareness of rock's foundations. The medium is undoubtedly the message here, as PDM attempts to re-evaluate rock with their very basic elements. They're loud because that's what rock should be. They're abrasive and physically offensive because that's what rock should be. Punk rock never sat back and let people listen peacefully, and that's exactly what Princess Dragon Mom is getting at. Sonically, there is truly nothing outstanding going on on Fear of Evil, as each track bleeds and screams its way into the next, pausing only moments for track identification and the odd repetitive vocal section (apparent in tracks like "Dominance and Submission"). Their message is simple -- if you don't like it, leave.
