AllMusic Review by

With 1993's Space in Your Face, the Galactic Cowboys gave new meaning to the term "sophomore slump." The band was either suffering from writer's block (which would explain the inclusion of outtakes and rejects from their first album sessions), or they expected their highly original sound to make up for the mediocre songwriting herein, but the result is a very disappointing album. In fact, it only deserves the above rating because of two exceptional songs: "Blind," which featurees the band at its epic, melodic best; and the comical serial-killer fantasy "If I Were a Killer," their biggest hit with its mildly successful MTV video to boot.
