Nash the Slash's second full-length solo album, and solo it is indeed, with Nash playing all instruments. Hillage does a wonderful job producing Nash, bringing out a much harder sound than heard on his debut solo release Dreams and Nightmares. This album rocks, complete with covers of the Rolling Stones (and brilliant version of "19th Nervous Breakdown," which seems perfectly suited for Nash) and Deep Purple, with Nash altering the words of the classic "Smoke on the Water" to "Dopes on the Water." He even covers Jan and Dean's "Dead Man's Curve," although the version found on this album is not as powerful as Nash's original cover found on a 7" single (released on Nash's own Cut-Throat Records). There are a number of interesting instrumentals full of wonderful noises that produce an awe-inspiring sound, especially the opening track "Wolf," which includes brief moments from Peter and the Wolf. This is a very strong album, full of interesting sounds, that stands up to repeated listenings. ~ Aaron Badgley
