AllMusic Review by

Quite a few hard rock bands in the early '90s took their equal love of alternative rock and heavy metal and managed to make a few great records. Sister Double Happiness is one of the bands that tried this formula, but despite their efforts, this album never quite clicks. The major problem is the production by Kevin Laffey; it takes the bite and power out of the guitars and pushes singer Gary Floyd too far above the mix. This gives the album a weird, soulful feeling that does not compliment the sound they are trying to achieve. Certain tracks, like the shambling "Exposed to You," maintain interest because the songwriting rises above the mix. But for the most part, the songs do not warrant such a weak production. Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum lends his skills to the album, but his organ playing is hard to hear and not worth the investment by Faith No More collectors. This is a soft, unenjoyable rock album that cannot be recommended.
