    Band Geek Mafia finds Voodoo Glow Skulls somewhat coming into their own, developing a cross between ska and punk that isn't quite ska-punk but has many of its same attributes. It's energetic, punchy, and irreverent -- and all of these are both blessings and curses, depending on your point of view. If you don't have a silly sense of humor, the record could get on your nerves, which might mean that you won't notice the fact that Voodoo Glow Skulls are musically more astute than many of their peers. They have a pretty sharp sense of melody and can blend the horns with the punk guitars with more dexterity than most. They do have problems with writing a consistent batch of songs, but the high points are proof that the group is coming into its own. And it's nice to see that they have the good taste to cover "Stranded in the Jungle." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
