      Batmobile's sixth album (1992).

      Batmobile's sixth album aims to be even more refined than its predecessors, evidenced by the longer song lengths (none are under two minutes any more), and a reduced level of silliness overall that robs the songs of some of their charm, but is ultimately for the best. This is the album where Batmobile are most expressly striving for the accolade of "the psychobilly Motörhead," with heavier riffs and distinctly hard rock verses in 'Hammering,' the aggressive 'Raw Dick' and 'A-Bomb Boogie' among others, and there's less variation from the standard sound throughout, unfortunately to the extent that most songs fail to distinguish themselves at all.

      'The Man in Black' seems to be another of the B-movie inspired pieces that are always a treat and see the psychedelic elements come to the fore, and it's pretty interesting with its ominous guitars and downbeat verses, while 'The Rocket' takes this to a greater extreme and injects elements of fun with the solo, drums and faster pace. 'I Need the Heat' is slow and minimal, 'Pay the Price' is fast and energetic and 'Superdick' has a nice, long solo, but otherwise this is a somewhat bland offering from Batmobile that will please fans of the genre but won't get any newcomers excited about exploring further as its more enjoyable predecessor may have achieved.
