    Nice opening riff. Strange to see that they still used strings back in their early days as this is such a raw, hard rock song. There had to be one or two guys in ELO that were asking themselves, "Do we really need a violinist in this band?" 7.5/10

    Not familiar with this Nazareth album but with it coming out in '86 I'm glad the didn't over do 80's clichés and kept relatively true to their sound without sounding dated. Good stuff.

    7/10

    Fuzzy and dirty...very nice ..cowbell and attitude- 9/10.

    These gave it large on reverb and distortion.

    Wow that was a killer tune. More obscure U.K. proto metal new to my ears. Definitely Cream / Hendrix influenced. You're the man Nai!

    9/10

    Cool minimalist stuff with a huge sound. Nice and raw and played with precision. Kind of a White Stripes of Austin, Texas.

    8.5/10

    sorry, Nai, I think that, considering the genre, this song is musically sufficient... however I really don't like this kind of vocals 4/10
