it hits you instantly. rock and roll. the guitars are scuzzy and melt into the horns, reis is ROCK AND ROLL. the production is very interesting on this. "aaaaalright!" he shreiks. it begins, and doesnt let up for just under 20 minutes. all songs are about or deal with FIRE.

probably the best single piece of vinyl by rftc, each song is played at breakneck speed. The first four tracks in particular are endlessly sing-along mosh pit favourites. Forget the Hives, these guys are the genuine article.

man, I love the swami, I think this is my favourite out of everything he's released. All of the state of art is on fire is amazing and Human Torch is the most kick ass song ever recorded. I miss the crypt.

Although a great fan of RFTC, I found this album totally disappointing. The songwriting is up to the usual high standard, and I could imagine me enjoying this album were it not for the abysmal production. I'm no techno-bore but I can only surmise that the whole album was produced by the bass-players mother, since the bass drowns out the vocals and most of the other instruments. I've given it a good few listens, but it only becomes more frustrating and irritating. It's as if Speedo was recorded in next door's swimming pool. No clarity, no crispness, no edge. Just a muddy racket.

The Most Insane Fifteen Minutes in RFTC History. 12 Dec. 2002
By Mark Podjasek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Perhaps the coolest thing about this nifty little disk is the fact that the "State" portion is actually a concept album of sorts - all the songs deal with (or at least mention) fire, hence the title. Cooler still, this is some of the best Rocket material out there. It's not long, mind you, but my lord, is it worth it. I may be a bit biased, however... when they played here in Chicago a few years back, their entire encore was this very "State" EP, played from start to finish... it was probably one of the best 10 minutes of live music I've ever heard. Then they bought the entire crowd a shot. Wow. Anyway, if you like RFTC, you'll grove on this for sure, especially "Human Torch". The added tracks ("Trouble" and "Masculine Intuition") comprised the "Rocket from the Crypt Plays the Music Machine" 5-inch (yes, five) Sympathy From the Record Industry release, and are not as interesting. I think they are covers of older songs that you'll probably listen to once. But the main course of this meal is the first six tracks, which any self-respecting RFTC fans should devour immediately.

for the love of distortion and rock n roll 18 July 1998
By nathan radke (nradke@trentu.ca) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this EP has the strangest mixing of any of rftc's albums, and considering how they normally mix, that says alot. it is almost impossible to tell the horns from the guitars, the bass from the drums, or the vocals from anything. however, it must also be said that this is an incredible collection of songs. there is a fire theme running through most of the songs, which is appropriate considering the band sounds like they are burning up. there is a sense of urgency to these 8 tracks which simply must be heard to believe. overall, great songs, amazing performance. the mixing adds to the blazing musical insanity.
