These speedy Santa Cruzers show off a parking lot full of motorbikes on the back cover, plus muscular riffs galore in their low-rent tunes -- frequently via early Van Halen via early Grand Funk, with lyrics focused on places where witches get burned ("Van Salem") and schoolyards where teen girls hang out ("Andrea"). Singing and playing can get clogged and clunky, respectively, but more often comprises sprightly NWOBHM-era Def Lep high notes, "Panama" rips ("Possessive Obsession"), and beer-primed biceps ("Brewtality"). The seven-and-a-half-minute closer even gives pomposity a memorable melody.
