Rolling Stone - 4/2/92, p.453 Stars - Good - "..great parodists... amplifies the absurdity of pop music in general.."
Q - 5/92, p.844 Stars - Excellent
NME (Magazine) - 10/28/00, p.40666 out of 10 - "...Extra tenderness and extra balls - tender balls, if you will. The sound is sharper, the arrangements broader, but tunes like 'Bitch School' and 'Christmas With The Devil' are classic Tap with double helpings of Tapology....Unenlightened, unimproved, unapologetic - it doesn't get more Tap than this."

Since Spinal Tap only existed for the 1984 film This Is Spinal Tap, the idea that Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, and Harry Shearer were actually going to release a studio album rather than a soundtrack brought on a tremendous amount of anticipation. The resulting product is Break Like the Wind, a record that, like the 1984 soundtrack, boasts powerful guitar and surprisingly decent vocals, along with some quite silly song themes. Unfortunately, when it comes to satirical bands, one can only hear these kind of songs a certain number of times before they become tedious. Instead of sticking to its roots, the album is also sometimes overshadowed by its celebrity appearances and heavy performances, which make it seem like the players were actually trying to make their listeners think that the album wasn't just a big joke. Break Like the Wind may have not been the comeback everyone was hoping for, but it certainly has enough amusing moments to be worth a listen. ~ Barry Weber
