  1. Uncut
    80
    If polished solos from Steve Vai and Keith Emerson detract from the original film's clumsy verite, some lines can still elicit big chuckles. [Aug 2009, p.105]
  2. The nostalgia continues on Back From the Dead with reworked versions of tunes from the Rob Reiner flick that started it all; six so-so new tracks reveal why the throwback vibe was probably a good idea.
  3. Finally, the sequel to Break Like The Wind...
  4. Under The Radar
    60
    One can't help thinking most of these new tracks would connect better in video format. [Summer 2009, p.68]
  5. Mojo
    60
    An achingly sharp comedy album then, but at 19 tracks it's to be admired rather than loved. [Jul 2009, p.92]
  6. Some listeners may find this approach riotous, since the humor is pushed right toward the front, while many may miss how their original recordings blurred the lines between real rock and fantasy.
  7. Reanimation never sounded so lifeless.
