It doesn't let up from there ­ in fact, we have it listed as one of the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs of all time ­ and this dynamic 2011 performance from Penn's Peak demonstrates why pretty clearly…it's Uncle Ted's energy, charisma and guitar playing that dominate the proceedings, particularly during the song's famous extended solo section.” (21/10/13)

More praise for Ultralive Ballisticrock here:
“…a hard-rocking romp..” --Jeff Karoub, Associated Press, October 8, 2013
“Nugent's new live CD/DVD Ultralive Ballisticrock isn't just a souvenir of a kick-ass rock concert. It's an experience­a spiritual revival, sermon, history class and rally for America rolled into one.” --James Wood,, September 6, 2013
“…'Uncle Ted' is rocking harder than ever.” --Howard Whitman,, September 9, 2013
“The passion, guts and glory that Ted Nugent puts into his guitar playing has always been something that speaks to me. It's layered in the past…the blues…Motown…early rock and roll…but it is pure; it is honest. It is Ted Nugent's musical voice and it is loud. Time has not changed that…Ted Nugent is still one of the original loudest guitar slingers on planet Earth. And his new album will remind everyone of that.” --Jeb Wright,, October 8, 2013
“Nugent is in classic 'Uncle Ted' form on this release. This man has a Rock 'n' Roll soul like no other, pure Detroit dynamite, infused with a bit of Motown & blues.” --Robert Cavuoto,, September 5, 2013
“Ultralive Ballisticrock is super high energy from beginning to end, but the set ends on an especially strong note with the hits 'Cat Scratch Fever' and 'Stranglehold' along with a take on 'Great White Buffalo'...” --Kevin Wierzbicki, Campus Circle, September 6, 2013
