The band's joyful noises did justice to Beefheart's nature-boy ardor for flesh and grit..." --Richard Gehr, Village Voice
Johnston's brass scores hit the R&B meat and twisted swing that Beefheart embedded in spidery guitars...Lucas on searing bottleneck guitar celebrated the rock in Beefheart's extremes." --David Fricke, Rolling Stone
Fast 'N' Bulbous play it just right. For starters, they are all excellent, exploratory musicians...I was expecting it to be good, but my expectations were surpassed in grand style." --Mike Barnes, The Wire, Mojo, and author of Captain Beefheart"
