"If you can look past the slighlty out-of-tune voice of the lead singer this is an awesome CD. Shame they split really. The 'Left For Dead' EP is also awesome."

"Technically not Ska, but horn-fuelled Oi! The thrashing sounds of Oi! occasional break for a ska riff and heavy, tunefull brass. Awesome, it blew me away. Best tracks are 'BPC' and 'Sick Joke'"

"Again, not a Ska band, more Punk with a hefty belting of Funk. Beleive me, the description sounds bad, but it's truely one of the best albums of 2003."
