AllMusic Review by

One of the least interesting volumes in the Cicadelic Texas punk series, and for that matter one of the least interesting Texas garage compilations in general. Most of this was previously unreleased; the Sights and Sounds and the Outcasts dominate the proceedings, with a few cuts by the Chevelle V, the Livin End, and the Centurys. If you're deeply enough into '60s collecting to even consider an album such as this, the basic garage sound will be familiar to you from innumerable compilations, which usually present it with more distinction. About the most interesting track is the Outcasts' "What Price Victory," the mild Vietnam war protest song that was the flipside to their bluesy classic "I'm in Pittsburgh and It's Raining."
