Rolling Stone wrote:  “With garage-savvy ex-Kingsmen keyboardist Don Gallucci producing their second album, the Stooges’ relentless “troglodyte groove” was allowed to run psychotically rampant. “I stick it deep inside,” Iggy Pop growls on “Loose.” And the punk torpedoes like “T.V. Eye” make good on that promise.”
