9/10 Adam Black Customer review, 22nd October 2013
Not only is the great Jello still making music, he's aged as gracefully as cheddar (for lack of a better metaphor).
Opening with the snappy, sharp-witted track "The Brown Lipstick Parade" all they way through the grand finale, "Shock-U-Py" this album is full of energy and a kind of carefully crafted sarcasm and mockery that could only come from Jello Biafra and perhaps a handful of others. As to be expected, this album is heavily politically oriented, slamming on certain groups (like in "Werewolves of Wall Street") and pointing out trends socially and in the government (like in "John Dillinger"). This entire album is loud and energetic, full loud electric guitar (and bass) and vicious, symbol-heavy drumming. At one point in the song "Road Rage" Jello goes off snarling and yapping incoherently along with many other bouts of fury towards anything from the government to celebrity worshiping. This album is definitely comparable to something the Dead Kennedys may have done back in the day and will likely be appreciated by any diehard DK fan.
Additionally, anyone who may buys this on vinyl will see that Alternative Tentacles did not skimp out. The LP is complete with a poster, very bright and vivid inner sleeve (one of those awesome cardboard ones) and, thankfully, an MP3 card. I recommend this album highly to any Dead Kennedys , Jello Biafra or any hardcore 80's punk fan looking for something similar with a more modern touch.
