  1. As David St. Hubbins said, "It's such a fine line between stupid and clever," and Saenz's locker-room humor wears thin quickly. Even cameos from Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Nelson's Matt Nelson, the Donnas' Allison Robertson and Brett Anderson, and the Darkness' frontman Justin Hawkins can't keep the same dick joke interesting for 40 minutes straight.
  2. Soft metal album that challenges Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Van Halen. Funny...I think.

    It's funnier than the Crue. And that's no mean feat. [Jul 2009, p.106]
  4. An exercise in taking a joke way too far.

    Enjoyment of this LA tribute act's wilfully non-PC parody of '80s hair metal entirely correlates with one's familarity with Poison and Faster Pussycat's liking for double--often single-entendres. [Jul 2009, p.117]

    By far the band's funniest album to date. Think 80s glam metal e.g. Crue, Ratt, Poison, but with less subtle lyrics. Sure, some of the lyricsBy far the band's funniest album to date. Think 80s glam metal e.g. Crue, Ratt, Poison, but with less subtle lyrics. Sure, some of the lyrics may be a little too silly for some people's tastes, but the excellent musicianship displayed throughout is sure to win them over anyway. Full Review »

    Steel Panther have come up with a vulgar yet hilarious album that is a guilty pleasure to sing along with. Starr writes out of control lyricsSteel Panther have come up with a vulgar yet hilarious album that is a guilty pleasure to sing along with. Starr writes out of control lyrics about drugs and girls, Satchel writes the best riffs to go with them. Full Review »

    Steel Panther maybe the Motley Crue on crack, but their major-label debut is definitely a record you would want to listen to again and againSteel Panther maybe the Motley Crue on crack, but their major-label debut is definitely a record you would want to listen to again and again until either your eardrums get numb or until you're just plain old sick and tired of listening to the record!!!!
