AllMusic Review by

With How to Make a Monster, New York's Electric Frankenstein craft a charged blend of forward-looking rock & roll and use the best of the past as a launchpad. The New York Dolls, Stooges, MC5 and Dead Boys are all sonic predecessors of Electric Frankenstein, whose power and attitude ignite on tracks like "Use Me," "Friction" and "Speed Girl." How to Make a Monster revels in classic, hook-laden rock songwriting but injects it with a new spark.
