Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
3 stars Woof again! When I first bought this album, right when it was released, I gave it one listen and filed it away. The music, while not bad hard rock, is not terribly imaginitive. Occasionally, there are slight attempts to recapture the sound of the early albums, but that's very slight, and barely noticable.

What stands out here are the lyrics. They are as biting, sarcastic, and funny as John Palumbo has ever written. Particularly good lyrics can be heard in "Betty And The Jets", "Suburban Subhuman" and my favorite, "I'm A Doctor", which has Palumbo portraying a lecherous physician. This song is also an apparent nod to David Bowie, sounding quite a bit like a cross between "Fame" and "Let's Dance".

Also of note about this album is the return of original CTS bassist Joe Macre for three songs.

Not quite 3 stars, but rounded up because of the inability to rate with fractions.
