Entertainment Weekly - 5/7/93, p.58"...Imagine a distaff Spin Doctors with more ooomph...[a] musical grab bag...stuffed with jet-propelled folk rock, angst-ridden anthems, high-octane blues, and '90s protest songs..."
- Rating: A-
Q - 7/93, p.884 Stars - Excellent - "...tracks like 'What's Up' and 'Spaceman' sound like suspiciously timeless classics...diversity of material diffuses the impact of the record to a degree, but [the album] is nevertheless an auspicious introduction..."

San Francisco's 4 Non Blondes burst onto the national scene with their massive, neo-hippie anthem "What's Up" from their debut Bigger, Better, Faster, More? Although they failed to recreate the single's success, the album, as a whole, is a fairly engaging mix of alternative rock, quasi-funk, and blues.
The focal point is on lead singer Linda Perry who also plays guitar and was the primary writer of the material. Perry has a powerful set of pipes akin to Johnette Napolitano, but, unfortunately, she tends to cut loose when a little more restraint would benefit the proceedings. However, "Superfly" is a feel good, funky number and "Spaceman"'s yearning lyrics are delivered over a quiet, martial drum rhythm. A solid debut that got lost in the wake of its mammoth hit. ~ Tom Demalon
