VITAL WEEKLY 887:
"Tank Of Danzig are a hybrid band, combining the
aggression of punk, the doom funk of it's day (A Certain Ratio, James Chance), no jazz and nu groove (it wasn't called like that in those days) to play some hyper active dance music, dominated by the blearing of a saxophone and the aggressive sing-shout of Schengel. It's not music that easily is called 'polished', but an excellent drive to it. 'So Hungry, So Angry', that great song by Medium Medium is something that comes close to the sound of Tank Of Danzig. Disco not disco. It's hard sitting down and listening as this is definitely the kind of music that makes people move. Great bass lines, funky drumming, disco guitars (but much, much more raw) and the saxophone and voice in a free mode. I believe back then they used the term 'big city funk' and 'crisis funk' - especially the latter term seems very appropriate these days. Unfortunately the crisis of our times isn't used to create similar great music as they did in 1982.
Tank Of Danzig: great discovery! (FdW)

RUMORE:
"..inserito nell'ondata post-punk del tempo, quella influenzata da funk, disco, jazz e dub.Impeccabile la musica: registrato molto bene nello studio di Conny Plank a Colonia, il disco infatti ha poco da invidiare a quelli dei più noti colleghi, con chitarre che tagliano, bassi che pulsano e ritmi che spingono, e un sax alla Contortions a svisare libero.
Andrea Pomini

DISTORSIONI :
"Mettendo sul lettore questo disco si rimane letteralmente spiazzati e piacevolmente sorpresi dal suo fantasioso sperimentalismo, dalla giocosità e dall’urgenza espressiva basata sulla fusion strumentale e dai contrappunti di un sax spesso sibilante, nevrastenico e contorto che va a movimentare e perturbare la regolarità ritmica. C’è una pacifica e armonica convivenza tra tribalismo e istinto, primitivismo a moduli ballabili. Gli stridori, le graffiate, l’abrasività vocale spesso irruenta procedono a ritmi rotondamente e brillantemente funky."
Voto: 7.5/10

STNT :
"De la No Wave dansante, funkysante, un bon vieux son New Yorkais du début 80 pour un groupe qui vous fera perdre l'embonpoint de l'hiver. 17 titres, 1 heure de danse, merci pour les vieux ! Un second et dernier LP a vu le jour en 84 et s'est très certainement perdu dans l'espace intersidéral. Si vous l'apercevez par là, écoutez le, on ne sait jamais... Encore merci Music à la Coque pour la découverte !
