Third album by Pittsburgh’s Garage finest. This release from 1990 featured a major lineup change for the Cynics, and showed the band continuing to mature as writers and musicians. Cuts like “Now I’m Alone” and “Girl, You’re on My Mind” (the latter penned for the Cynics by the Mystic Eyes Bernie Kugel) are hits that should have been. Other cuts like “What You Get,” “Business As Usual,” “Baby, What’s Wrong” and “Way It’s Gonna Be” show the Cynics at a peak of energy, creativity and ability. This release also includes a few well-chosen covers of forgotten classics from the sixties, revitalized with the Cynics style and skill. “Cry, Cry, Cry” and “Last Time Around” are scorchers, while “The Room” shows the Cynics lighter side. This album is a true classic. If you didn’t get it before, get it now!
**The 2007 reissue has been remastered and includes bonus track not available on the original, of a cover of the Sonics classic “Shot Down”  from the same session recorded for a tribute album back in the day. Also available on 180-gram LP and colored vinyl!**

“Energy & attitude with killer hooks” ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“A continual spew of fuzz-fed exhilaration that outshines their progenitors. The Cynics keep the blacklight beat and the six-string swarm consistently set at adrenal overload” CMJ
