Review of Adam West "Sizzleen" 7" in All Music Guide - August 2001

Adam West "Sizzleen" 7" (Glazed Records)
Adam West may have started out on a more straight up Misfits/Stooges tip, but by the time this single emerged there were other reference points to keep in mind. "Sizzleen" itself is a good enough blast of raunchy garage metal, its most distinct elements courtesy of singer Starr's blooze bark and drummer Barrick's way around funky beats. When it's stripped down to just the two of them, the results are a nice bit of classic rock power filtered into the modern day. The flipside takes said classic rock fascination to a logical degree via a cover of Black Sabbath's megabadass stomp "Supernaut." Unfortunately, it's neither as impressive as the original or as flat-out massive as the 1000 Homo DJs version years later -- it's loud and riffs along well, sure, but aside from agreeable fretbending thanks to guitarist Baranowsky, it's just there. Still, better that than one more cover of "Paranoid" or "War Pigs."
