    Traffics full-time in the kind of raw, godless punk rock that's relegated to a handful of cuts on Queens' albums. [Sep 2003, p.112]

    A Drug Problem... is like the contents of a [D]umpster: greasy, creepy, nasty, and random. [#23, p.96]
  3. While there are plaintive acoustic moments, listen closely and [Oliveri's] inciting listeners to necrophiliac cannibalism. [Aug 2003, p.110]
  4. This record may not be as wild-eyed and rabid as it's predecessor, 2000's 'Cocaine Rodeo', but it's loaded with more illicit sex, insanity and glam-punk brilliance than you can shake Satan's pitchfork at.
  5. When 'A Drug Problem That Never Existed' is at its best, briefest and most brutish, it's a cracking piece of work indeed; daft, dirty and, in many ways, devilish.

    Oliveri needs a grounding element; without it, he just plays the Neanderthal wild-ass screamer. [Sep 2003, p.126]

    This is album is slab of dirty, drug fuelled rock that is designed for anyone who has ever felt at one point in there life that drinking a bottle of whiskey and shouting out profanities is the way to make friends and influence. Essential Grade A Mentalism! Expand
