It's what you would expect out of a new Silver Shine record but in a good way. It's not that they haven't made any progress with this CD more that they're aware of their strengths and are playing up to them; the trademark punk tinged psychobilly sound they've developed just pulls back from being 'punk with a double bass'.

As I said in another thread it's good to hear Krista on the microphone; her vocal is a little awkward at times but I'm always a sucker for vocalists whose first language isn't English. There's more harmonic backing on this CD but it's pretty rough rather than over-sweet or pop-punkish.

All in all probably better than No Mercy but I'm not sure it tops Don't Trust the Girl with the Chainsaw, but the latter has huge nostalgic value for me.

Highlights: On the Edge of Luck & Reptile

Motifs of Psychosis
