If You Can't Lick 'Em...Lick 'Em

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Franck
Ted Nugent's final album of the '80s is one of his strongest of the decade, although that isn't saying much. A reunion with producer Tom Werman, it's evident that Nugent had a particular sound in mind when he stepped into the studio. If the album's style marks a return to the classic compact Nugent guitar sound, the songs leave much to be desired.

In an effort to garner FM airplay, the Nuge collaborates with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora on "That's the Story of Love." Sadly, the track sounds like a bad Kiss outtake. The "Little Wing"-inspired "Spread Your Wings" never takes flight either, and the ridiculously titled "The Harder They Come The Harder I Get" is anything but hard or cutting-edge. Once again, hiring the best studio dogs that money can buy, like stellar drummer Pat Torpey or knack engineer John Purdell, hardly helps save Nugent from himself.
