All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Every generation has rockabilly cats to call their own. The original sound and intent gets diluted throughout the years, but the sight of tattooed, backwoods greasers with pompadours remains a beloved rock & roll image. In the '90s, nobody did it better than Reverend Horton Heat, but Melbourne, Australia natives the Living End give the good reverend a run for his money on their self-titled American debut.

    lots of energy, great band!

    The Living End are awesome musicians, a great punk/rock band! I think their best album is "Roll On", where they do an awesome live version of "Prisoner of Society"!
