AllMusic Review by

Despite a string of disappointing studio albums, Ted Nugent fulfills his recording obligation for Epic Records with this excellent live collection. Intensities in 10 Cities features all original material and proves once and for all that when it came to live performances, few could touch the Nuge's over-the-top charisma. "Spontaneous Combustion," "Jailbait," and the self-explanatory "My Love Is Like a Tire Iron" are slabs of prime gonzo, the likes of which hadn't been heard since Cat Scratch Fever. The silence between songs and rather boring amped-up blues romps such as "Heads Will Roll" and "I Am a Predator" knock a few points off the total score, but a furiously giddy cover of "Land of a Thousand Dances" will leave the listener grinning maniacally nonetheless.
