AllMusic Review by

With the emergence of such gloriously stupid bands as the Darkness and the Wildhearts, why shouldn't an earlier similarly styled band, Zodiac Mindwarp & the Love Reaction, crash the scene yet again? That's exactly what took place in the early 21st century, when Zodiac Mindwarp issued their first new studio album in eight years with 2002's I Am Rock. Obviously reinvigorated, the group's first ever live release followed two years later, Weapons of Mass Destruction. Recorded live on March 13, 2003 (at a venue called Sticky Fingers, in Gothenburg, Germany), the group touches upon songs both past and present, as evidenced by such favorites as "High Priest of Love," "Prime Mover," and "I Am Rock" as well as a set-closing cover of Thin Lizzy's "The Rocker." Weapons of Mass Destruction manages to successfully convey all the filth and fury of a Zodiac Mindwarp gig.
