    Some old punk hands (notably erstwhile Black Flag guitarist Dez Caden) conjure up some acceptable punk bubblegum. [Dec 2011, p.90]

    The Devil's Rain feels like a 50/50 shot-in-the-dark project, starting in a place unsure of its own existence and finishing strong with the uncompromising "Death Ray."

    The Devil's Rain, then, is a slightly mixed bag of tricks, treats and travesties.

    In the end, then, it's not that The Devil's Rain is a bad album, but it's by far the weakest link in the band's catalog, and coming at a time when faith in the group is at an all-time low.

    The Devil's Rain is chock full of good, campy horror business.

    The Devil's Rain is very silly indeed. [Dec. 2011 p. 136]

    If Famous Monsters was a step back for the Misfits legacy, this is a bigger step in the wrong direction.

    In truth this is pale goth rock crap. [5 Nov 2011, p.52]

    The Devil's Rain is the work of a band that aspires to give the genre little more than its answer to "The Monster Mash."

    While the band's heritage has been hanging on by a thread for decades, The Devil's Rain is but an undercharged defibrillator to its decomposing corpse.

    The Misfits' schtick should stand the test of time. But The Devil's Rain makes supernatural feel like fairly workaday stuff.

    I can't review this album because I can't even bare listen to it. I tried, but it doesn't sound right. The Misfits without Glenn Danzig is not the Misfits at all. Full Review »
