AllMusic Review by

Sneering, defiant, and not altogether intelligent, the Varukers make retread punk thrash with all the heavy-handed vitriol and sputtering spite expected from the Mohawk crowd. Although even less imaginative than the bands to whom they owe obvious stylistic debts, they manage to plow through a good portion of punk's most cherished dogmas and anarchistic slogans in less than 25 minutes. Clich├ęd and contradictory, on one hand decrying violence and on the other reveling in fantasies of brutally murdering their enemies, they nonetheless have a good grasp of their punk instrumental chops. Still, How Do You Sleep? probably isn't a necessary purchase for anyone but the most devoted of hardcore punk fans (although they would already have countless similar albums).
