    Because this album snaps together so well with such a varied texture, it does more in 40 minutes than most lecturers do in their entire career.

    This colourful fruit ain't rotting yet. [May 2013, p.90]

    The band takes risks, incorporating styles like rockabilly and classic rock into its punk fusion in a way that's dizzying but never disconcerting.

    White People might not raise itself to the scathing heights of Biafra’s punk rock heyday, but it proves that punk’s most prized court jester still hasn’t washed the bitter taste from his mouth.

    Despite Jello Biafra’s best intentions, White People And The Damage Done seems to settle for righteous belligerence while falling some way short of being a worth soundtrack for the anti-globalisation movement.

    There's nothing here to match the heavy thump of his mid-noughties collaborations with the Melvins such as Sieg Howdy!, but it still punches hard. [May 2013, p.95]

    Musically, it’s primarily beefy, anthemic business as usual--fine for the most part, even if Road Rage and the glitterati-decimating Hollywood Goof Disease veer perilously close to predictability.
