Though the songs don't all sound the same, the songs do have a subpar production level, and most suffer from limp, sloppy chord progressions. This singles collection, however, does show some punk promise on tracks like "Saddletramp" and "Sex & Outrage." Other songs teeter on the thin line that separates punk rock from heavy metal, as versions of The Dead Boys' "What Love Is..." and Nazareth's "Razzmanazz" suggest that The Supersuckers want to play rock utilizing the energy of punk while taking advantage of the glamour and excess of heavy metal. Another cover, Madonna's "Burnin' Up," doesn't suggest anything except complete inanity, but also happens to be the most memorable song on the record.
