Compiling various 7" records onto one CD, Overdosed On... is a pretty decent, though hardly earth-shaking, collection of oddball covers, guest appearances, and live tracks. Chemical People specialized in a poppy blend of punk and even a bit of KISS rock n roll, and had varying results. The four tracks that featured infamous ALL roadie Bug Phace on vocals are among the best here, as well as GG Allin and Misfits covers. Meanwhile, the live songs that make up the latter half of the album are suffering from so-so production and aren't particularly anything spectacular. This package is for hardcore Chemical fans and the pop-punk fan who can never get enough of the genre.

From a band who I was never overly impressed with, this record is phenomenal. Chemical People had slimmed down to just Dave Naz and Ed Urlik by this point and maybe that is the difference. The tunes are a little less punk and more rock and it helps immensely. Dave Naz still has his deep non-singing voice, but it works here like never before. The production puts emphasis on the guitar (split between Naz and Urlik) and gives it a full effect, making the songs themselves the main product. "Two Years" simply rocks, "Drift Away" has a emotional epic feel, and the rest are anywhere from good to superb. Check this one out.
