AllMusic Review by

Angry Johnny & The Killbillies' follow-up to Hankenstein finds them exploring new musical terrain while still maintaining the sick, disturbing lyrical tone that earmarked their debut. The rougher production of their opening gun is replaced by a smoother, more mainstream sound, with producer Mark Alan Miller bringing in everything from Eric Ambel's lead guitar and B-3 organ to balalaikas, clarinets, tubas and accordions to spice things up. Highlights are plentiful, but special attention must be paid to "All American Girl," "Kill Again," "Jezebel," "A Love More True" and "Won't Get Me Out of Your Mind."
