AllMusic Review by

The steady horn section and quick guitar solos drive the energy of the mostly up-tempo debut from Spider Nick and the Maddogs. Their tutorial stories praise spiders, denounce tobacco, and encourage caution with "club girls." Despite a few slow moments when the group pays homage to its roots with renditions of Prince Buster's "Rude Boys Rule" and Duke Ellington's "Blue Pepper" Voyage to the Palace of Kali is a party for fans of ska or anyone who just loves to dance.
