    Released in both English and Spanish versions, Voodoo Glow Skulls' 1995 effort may have been one of the high points in popularity for the seven-member ska-punk outfit. Unlike some more laid-back performers in the genre, and coming from a time before the style was commercially successful, Voodoo Glow Skulls are a bit more heavy-handed on the punk part of the mix, resulting in consistently fast-paced and chugging song structures that occasionally erupt into triumphant horn breakdowns and chanted group vocals. The group's ska stylings very nearly save the day a number of times. A cover of the traditional "Charlie Brown" and a few Spanish numbers come off pretty well, and the disc also includes "Fat Randy," one of the group's more convincing ska-punk hybrids, whose kinetic horn parts and metal choruses earned it a bit of airplay in the mid-'90s. ~ Peter J. D'Angelo

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (8/96, p.92) - 3 (out of 5) - "...This Riverside, California septet punctuates its double-time 'skacore' with tons of percussion and blasts of sax, trumpet and trombone...for all its hardcore intensity the actual mood of FIRME is energetic, lively and upbeat..."
    Option (7-8/96, p.139) - "...VGS just wants everybody to jump into the mosh pit and have fun..."
