"The headbanged genius that is Rob Kern has more than innovatively picked, of all things, the smells-funny horn rock abomination, Chicago, as a crafty, sly jump-off point to wax nostalgically about the wider (and harder) rocking realm and his own booze-addled stupidity, each wayward tale (all better than yours) and oldster-vantaged observation sure to send any classic rock waste-case into knowing winks and the odd convulsion of sad recognition.
This journey has not made me like Chicago any higher ‘n the last place in which the band presides. But it has made me appreciate how a whole hilarious rock ‘n’ beers universe can be spun out of such a musical no-go zone, especially when the spinner is a guy who self-professes possession of a mind stuffed with simultaneously rockin’ an’ rollin’ hamster wheels.” - Martin Popoff
