Since Skull of your Country was never commercially released before I'm not surprised that the reviewer doesn't know that it came before Eclipse. He is still right about the vocals however, they suck, plain and simple.

Rumours have it that Meat is wanted to sing Body on a rumoured songs from CD. Would be a real waste of the song. If he does, they'd better change the lyrics to include "is it my back, is it my knees". For the listener the answer is simple: the ears, whenever he croaks.
