Q Magazine Review

Lloyd Bradley (Q Magazine): "This, his first album serves up nine resounding slabs of thrash metal, that stand head and shoulders above the competition by virtue of Dad's guiding hand-Frank produced the set. The playing is never sloppy, the rhythm section powerful and the solos usually inventive without tapering off into self indulgence. The only songs that let it down are Let's Talk About It and You Can't Ruin Me, where sister Moon takes lead vocal and is something of an anti-climax after Dweezil's forceful roaring. If he continues hitting the teenage angst spot so deftly (song titles include Having A Bad Day, I Want A Yacht and Blonde Hair Brown Nose) this young man could have quite a future in today's metalhungry USA."
