    I'm amazed at all the negative reactions to this album! This is one of JSBX best! Still as raw, funky and widly inventive as ever! The production is superb and the songs as mad as ever!

    The whole about the JSBX is that they always zig when you think they're gonna zag. I think if you like them for their ideas, then you'll like this album, but if you're hung up on the aesthetics of one particular alb (most nerd/critics still wish they keep making Extra Width over and over again), then you're not getting what you want.

  1. It's by no means a bad album, just not his best by a long way, or the triumphant return it should have been.
  2. Ultimately, this is merely a straight-down-the-line rock'n'roll album.

    Traditional progressions temper the punkish wails and feedback that dominated previous albums, revealing a tight garage-rock band to be reckoned with. [26 Apr 2002, p.148]
