Walk Among Us

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
The Misfits' 1982 debut full-length, Walk Among Us, rapidly became a legendary effort of U.S. punk, the more so because it so willfully violated many rules which were already ironically straitjacketing the scene. Utterly devoid of political confrontation or social uplift, embracing a costume sense that might have given Kiss pause and generally coming across like the horror-movie nightmares they looked like on the cover, the Misfits just wanted to entertain and do their own thing -- and that they did, brilliantly. Nearly every song on the album -- 13 total, delivered in a light-speed 25 minutes -- is a twisted classic, with the band's trademark '50s/'60s melodies run through...

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
The Misfits' 1982 debut full-length, Walk Among Us, rapidly became a legendary effort of U.S. punk, the more so because it so willfully violated many rules which were already ironically straitjacketing the scene. Utterly devoid of political confrontation or social uplift, embracing a costume sense that might have given Kiss pause and generally coming across like the horror-movie nightmares they looked like on the cover, the Misfits just wanted to entertain and do their own thing -- and that they did, brilliantly. Nearly every song on the album -- 13 total, delivered in a light-speed 25 minutes -- is a twisted classic, with the band's trademark '50s/'60s melodies run through a punk/metal meatgrinder on full display. The higher-budget in very relative terms recording meant a slightly cleaner and brighter sound all around, but nothing about Walk Among Us is slick, especially in commercial 1982 terms. One song title says it all: "All Hell Breaks Loose." Danzig's gift for creepy, strong, and attractively dark singing was long since established and he uses it brilliantly, making the over-the-top lyrics all the more enjoyable, while Doyle, Jerry Only, and Arthur Googy kick out the jams on Danzig's songs big time -- check out "Hatebreeders," "Violent World," and the crazed "Skulls." Everything ends with the giddily ridiculous "Braineaters," in which the chanting voices of the band bemoan their constant diet of cerebella and ask for intestines instead, but the real freaked-out highlight comes smack dab in the middle with "Mommy Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight." Taken from the show that made up the Evilive release, it starts out on the edge and, after Danzig delivers the title sans instruments, turns into an explosion of rhythm and feedback that should have killed everything within 50 feet of the amps.

    ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE

    This cd is by far THE best punk album of all time. Its the alternative to punk, Danzig doesnt sing about anythin political or frustrating to him, just about horror and he captures that horror perfectly. Doyle and Jerry are at their best. Songs faster and more exciting then on Static Age. Great album

    They Will Forever Walk

    This is the album that put the Misfits on the map. The production of this album was a big help, making it more polished to the ear. Not to mention the stand out anthematic themes one after another...."Night Of The Living Dead," "Astro Zombies," "Skulls," and the list goes on. A completely well rounded album from start to finish with the perfect amount of ups and downs. Walk Among Us features the Misfits' strongest line up ever. Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, Doyle, and their longest running drummer, Arthur Googy. The packaging features a beautiful cover. Liner notes are short and to the point. Mostly just production notes. There is a great photo inside, however, it is not the same line up that appears on the album.

    Amazing

    This record is just as catchy as Static Age. Great sing along choruses and amazing vocals that Danzig is known to create. This record has more of a horror theme as well. A very good record front to back. I recommend this to everyone as they'll be singing along in no time.
