Reception[edit]

Greg Prato of Allmusic gave the record 3.5 stars of 5, saying that "While there are a few catchy tunes — especially the album opener, 'Alone' — for the most part, riffs 'n' ranting play a prominent role here." He added, "Not all of the lyrics hit the mark," citing a line from the song "Bebop" which apparently quotes "Tutti Frutti," by Little Richard.
