skullhead-odins-lawAlthough undeniably one of the classic acts of the original UK RAC scene, Skullhead doesn’t seem to enjoy quite the same amount of respect and adoration that contemporaries such as Skrewdriver, No Remorse and Brutal Attack do. And listening to this, their second album, it’s quite obvious why.

The cover is, as was par for the course with RAC on Rock-O-Rama, pretty horrible. The production is also quite deplorable, being thin and quite weak, with especially the guitars sounding very flat and powerless. The vocals are also a tad too loud in the mix. This does not in any way benefit the album, which also suffers from rather forgettable songwriting; the entire album is passable, but not memorable in any way. It’s just your run-of-the-mill 80’s Oi!-influenced RAC. To top it all off, there’s a far superior version Last Chance to be found on the Ragnorok-compilation.

Definitely not an RAC essential for average fans of the genre, but one for completists and collectors.
