|"Rob Carlyle and
the rest of the Compulsions don't just play their blues and booze blend of rock
'n' roll, they come right out and smack you straight across the face with it. Everything
from the Rolling Stones to Johnny Thunders with a little Guns N' Roses exists in
the Compulsions' songs of discontent."

|"With an incredible
lineup boasting Rob Carlyle on vocals and guitar, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer
Frank Ferrer from Guns N' Roses fame and bassist Sami Yaffa from Hanoi Rocks and
the New York Dolls, I guess it's sort of inevitable that the Compulsions released
a record this good."
