AllMusic Review by

The Esquires have one side of this reissue LP, which is shared with another Texas '60s garage band, the Outcasts. "Judgement Day," with its stomping Pretty Things-like arrangement (although this is not the "Judgement Day" performed by the Pretties themselves), and the all-out hurtling tornado of "Come On, Come On" are two of the finest examples of Texan '60s garage rock. The other four tracks aren't nearly as good, but considering how good the good stuff is (by both the Esquires and the Outcasts), the LP's not a bad pickup for garageheads.
