Reception edit

Spin wrote, "blustering Ratt-like production [and] stupefying collection of guitar licks nicked from Eddie Van Halen by way of Steve Vai. Unlike Ratt, Dweezil sings not of screwing women but of inane and obvious 'positive force' ideals like 'Stay away from drugs or they'll take you to your grave'."[3]
