Allergic: Heard these guys had somehow softened up and got all poopy poppy ’n shit. If they have, it ain’t apparent from this disc, ’cause what I got comin’ outta my speakers right now is some pretty brutal hardcore. There is considerably more “metal” in the guitars than I remember there previously being, but it ain’t all that annoying. Final verdict is that I still dig ’em. McCarthy: A little more run-of-the-mill in sound than Allergic to Whores, but that’s more like saying the Rezillos are kinda run-of-the-mill in comparison to Teenage Jesus, meaning it ain’t meant as an insult. Loud, fast hardcore with occasional dual vocal stylings and a socially conscious bent to their lyrics. My only gripe is that there was just a wee bit too much metal to the guitars, which effectively led them to being dropped from my favorite band of the week contest.
