    From cow-punk ("Killed a Chicken Last Night") and DIY metal ("Dontcha Lie to Me Baby") to gritty classic rock ("Wind up Blind"), Biram proves the ultimate outlaw.

    One rarely feels so much energy and solidarity in loneliness and despair than when one listens to Scott H. Biram's music, not the least in Bad Ingredients.

    His guitar solos are more electrified than usual, and they sound like burning juke-joint riffs... a true American original. [No. 82, p. 53]

    If it isn't as strong as 2009's Something's Wrong/Lost Forever, it shows Biram is too tough and too stubborn to quit telling his tales any time soon, and for folks who like their music rough and real, that's a rare bit of good news.

    Despite the occasional lapse in songwriting, Bad Ingredients still impresses for what Biram accomplishes within the confines of a DIY aesthetic.

    He's a vibrant and, indeed, impassioned performer and Bad Ingredients is filled with enough passion and conviction to spark an entire orchestra. And a rousing ensemble at that.
