The following is the review of Hi-Fructose given by Bizarre Magazine (154):
"Occasionally, a book comes into the Bizarre office that brings work grinding to a halt. Usually it's full of naked girls writhing around on grotty hotel beds - or perverted furries giving each other a good seeing-to - but when this hardback collection of hard-to-find Hi-Fructose art magazines arrived in Bizarre Towers, all hopes of hitting deadline flew out the window. Showcasing a huge selection of alternative artists who'll already be familiar to Bizarre readers and fans of our Dark Art section - including Mark Ryden, Tim Biskup and Michael Salter - the biggest appeal of Hi-Fructose is its technicoloured avalanche of surreal, hilarious and often deeply disturbing artwork, making this a book that you can keep returning to and always spot something different. And as the gorgeous illustrations are punctuated with smart and informed articles on the artists in question, and interviews with the people behind the artwork, reading Hi-Fructose is a delirious joy, and will hopefully provide an inspirational jump-off point for amateur artists to develop their own skills."
