    The disc is as loose, casual and rollicking as a conversation with an old friend.... across these 65 minutes, his manic energy shines through. [#154, p.87]

    A funny and engaging spoken-word collection from a man who's done enough of them to know what works.
  3. Sounding like a profane camp counselor telling stories by the fireside, Rollins' naturally animated raspy voice is the perfect chaperone through eleven tracks of commentary.
  4. While none of the funny parts are quite as funny as some of his best recorded pieces (especially those on the two-disc collections The Boxed Life and Think Tank), and none of the more serious tales are as moving as his best work (like on the video Talking From the Box), it's still an entertaining collection filled with interesting tales and humorous, timely quips.

Only now have I finally sat down and listened to some of Henry's spoken word. I'm a Black Flag fan so I thought that I'd give it a go. Humorous, intellgent, diverse and hilarious. I can;t wait until he comes to town again so I can see him live. Full Review »
