  1. Outta Sight/Outta Mind is not an album that you can discuss in measured tones whilst tending to your beard. It is an album that will only cause mass hysteria and blood clots and burst forth Kundalini from the base of your spine like some auto-massage chair plugged into the wrong transformer while you holler “wheeeeaaauurgh!!” and finally slump down into a wet pile of exhaustion.

    They are still greasy rock & rollers who know how to keep a party going. [Oct 2004, p.120]
  3. 70
    A less full-tilt affair than their first effort... but no less fun. [Jul 2004, p.95]
  4. Much of the time they sound like a 1973 youth club rock band.
  5. They seem like a garden-variety hard rock band, one that would have been generic and forgettable in 1974, and one that is generic and forgettable in 2004.
  6. Amount[s] to little more than a facsimile of their forefathers. [Nov 2004, p.149]
  7. 25
    [The Datsuns] now sound unfit to carry the Donnas' jockstraps. [Oct 2004, p.120]
