“Without any pretenses, the album blasts straight into the driving rock sound that has come to define the longest-standing South African rock band. You immediately find yourself at a Jack Hammer gig, with Paul van De Waal (Duke) steady behind the kit, Tertius du Plessis (Bean) towering over his black bass like a watchkeeper, and Johnathan Martin and Jake Gunn wringing rock ’n roll out of their guitars as if their lives depended on it.” – Album review by Jannike Bergh
