AllMusic Review by

Limited to just 5,000 copies pressed on clear green vinyl, this three-song 10" features Scott Hill and Brad Davis with newly acquired treasure Brant Bjork. Side one, identified only by a catfish on the album, contains a tasty revision of Blue Oyster Cult's classic "Godzilla," jamming out low-end desert fuzz at its finest. Foretelling the promise of the new lineup, the flip side displays the Man's Ruin cat logo while the music features slow burning originals "Module Overload" and "Living Legend," supercharged by Bjork's powerhouse drumming. Guitarist Bob Balch would replace interim guitarist Mike Coopersmith soon after this recording in late 1996; three years later, the Eatin' Dust EP combined this release with five additional warm and fuzzy road rock anthems.
