AllMusic Review by

Ten slabs of frenzied beat capture the mighty Demented Are Go in their most natural habitat, pounding out their crypt-kicking riffery to an audience that you just know is going as wild as the band. Few of the songs will need any introduction to the converted, but still you can only gaze open-mouthed at the beauty and energy of "Satan's Rejects" and "Country Woman," taken at a far wilder clip than the familiar version, while "Call of the Wired" really couldn't be titled anything else! There's also a stupendous version of Cliff Richard's "Move It," reclaimed from the realms of rock nostalgia to stand so proud that it practically epitomizes the entire psychobilly movement in its own right. Not the easiest Demented Are Go album to find in its original form, the full beast has since been appended to Cherry Red's 2008 reissue of The Day the Earth Spat Blood.
