Fast Stories…from Kid Coma is loosely a concept album, about a comatose kid “reliving a past summer of grandeur.”

The Encyclopedia of Popular Music called the album “a hard-hitting, insistent record that occasionally overreached in its attempts to distance itself from its contemporaries.”

Trouser Press wrote: “Heavy but never bludgeoning, melodic but never cheesy, excessive but never ridiculous, Fast Stories is an extended trip into several of rock’s outer dimensions.”

Loudwire ranked the album at twenty-sixth in their list of “The 30 Best Grunge Albums of All Time.”

Kerrang! wrote that Fast Stories…from Kid Coma “remains a genuinely vital album, and quite possibly the [grunge] genre’s swan song.”

Louder Sound named the album in their list of “10 obscure but absolutely essential grunge albums.”

MTV called it “the great psychedelic hard rock rush of the year.”
