Not many bands are attributed to releasing a classic album that stands the test of time, but BOC have done it here. From the opening Career of Evil through such gems as The Subhuman, Dominance & Submission, ME262, and Harvester of Eyes this album just oozes class. BOC could always come up with better song titles than most bands could entire songs. The musicianship is quite exceptional and Buck Dharma's guitar work is faultless throughout. He has to be one of the most underated performers in rock and it's a mystery he never gets the credit and praise he so justly deserves. The icing on the cake has to be the final two tracks, Flaming Telepaths which picks up speed like a downhill runaway train before crashing to a halt for Astronomy, which has to be BOC's finest six and a half minutes ever. It's testament to this album that many of the songs appear in BOC's live set to this day. The bonus tracks though are pretty much non-essential, although Boorman the Chauffeur is probally the most interesting. So forget nu-metal, buy this. You won't be dissapointed.

`I choose to steal what you choose to show...and you know.. I will not apologise'. You immediately know that you are leaving the world of Led Zep and Deep Purple way behind. Each song is a tyrannical little missive from BOC who thwart your every expectation. There are no wanton luurve songs in this dojo. `In Times Square now people do the polka..' - Dominance & Submission - I hope you know what these lyrics mean because I don't.
