AllMusic Review by

After vanishing from the rock music world for a few years, Nazareth reappeared with its first '90s release, 1992's NO JIVE. The world may have been in the grips of the grunge revolution, with such new and exciting bands as Nirvana and Soundgarden leading the charge, but Nazareth stuck to its guns and partied like it was still 1979.

NO JIVE is easily Nazareth's best since at least 1980's MALICE IN WONDERLAND, as the group rocks and rolls through 11 cuts, highlights being "Hire and Fire," "Right Between the Eyes," and "Thinkin' Man's Nightmare." This strong album makes you wonder what would have happened had it been released in the early '80s, when the band needed a focused album to put it back on track.
