AllMusic Review by

Besides putting out the rarest Rocket album of all, Hot Charity, Perfect Sound released some singles from the group in 1995 as well, including this fan-club-only release. A single-sided slab of vinyl -- the flipside is etched with the band and single name, along with some instruments -- "I Flame You" itself kicks off with a quick roll of Atom drumming before the band smacks in with a usual full-bodied assault. Horns are wailing; the riffs are thick and driving; tempos start, stop, and turn back on themselves; and Reis is in his fine, rough-voiced form as one would expect. It's not a deathless number from Rocket, but it's further proof that they're a fantastic instant party band (and his brain-melting solo toward the end needs to be heard).
