With all the hoopla heaped upon their raucous debut, "Kick Out the Jams" (an essential purchase in itself), I'm baffled as to why this classic is so often merely referred to as being "their last album". In my opinion, it's easily the MC5's best, and indeed one of the greatest pure rock'n'roll albums of all time.
Firstly, some context: by this stage in their career (1971), the MC5 were on their last legs. Loathed by the West Coast hippies for being too loud and rambunctous, and equally derided by much of their radical, hardcore following for the supposed "sell-out" of their previous effort, the flawed-but-still-good "Back In the USA", the band was in no man's land. The revolution didn't happen, Nixon was still in, and what's worse, kids were starting to listen to Cat Stevens and James Taylor instead of the Rolling Stones, the Velvets or, yep, the MC5. Whadya do? Make the ultimate statement of disillusionment and despair and wrap it up in incindiary r'n'r riffs.
This disc is certainly a product of its time, yet it hasn't dated a bit in its call to arms for true believers. The given theme may be despair at the state of the world, but there's also an intense feeling of liberation in the cabalistic world - now that the band had little if any audience left - it inhabits. In other words, this one is for YOU.

I remember hearing Kick Out The Jams and seeing a few photos of these guys but never picked up any of their stuff until this album came out. After a few listens, the songs grew on me and I like every track. My personal favorite is Sister Anne.

After getting their first two albums, this one seems to be the most refined and mature which is usually what ruins a group's sound. In this case, it was just the opposite. I think they grew into one hell of a band and had such potential, ruined by excess, bad management, the usual stuff. Too bad.

If you want a great slice of rock history and hear how this band could really "kick out the jams," buy this album!

Highly recommended.

Forget everything you've been reading about the Stooges's seminal punk efforts & be serious...Get this cd,give it a listen with a a good stereo equipment .The result is one of the best records ever made,the band being at last perfectly engineered (thank you,Mr Haslam).The Five had almost everything:exceptional musicians,the best singer this side of Roger Daltrey(what he does on "over and over"is incredible),a collective songwriting genius,not to mention they sounded like a panzer division on any stage...

The reason why they didn't make it still remains a mystery today ,but this record is something like the Himalaya of Rock & Roll,few did better than the Five indeed!

I agree with the reviewers here that High Time doesn't get the recognition that it deserves. In my opinion, this is even better than Kick Out the Jams and that's no shot since I love that album as well. Released in 1971, High Time is more furious than most of the punk rock music that it influenced. They were still trying to change the world hence the track "Future/Now" but this is just loose dirty rock n' roll that goes for the throat. I discovered this when I heard "Sister Anne" on Little Steven's Underground Garage a few years back and soon after, I downloaded the album here from Amazon. No regrets. Every track here is a killer from the aforementioned "Sister Anne" to the relentless rockers "Poison", "Baby Won't Ya" and "Gotta Keep Movin'". Along with the spirit of the band's performances, there is a nod to old school rock n' roll throughout that is best evidenced on the ballad "Miss X" and the harmonica driven "Over and Over". The last tune, "Skunk (Sonicly Speaking)", is a great closer and my personal favorite as it starts with a long drum solo before going into its wicked riff and the horns at the end actually add to the fury. All told, this is an old school punk classic before it was called punk. Highly recommended.

High energy, brilliant hooks, gut wrenching guitar work, lyrical genius. "Over and Over" predates the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again," has as much energy and passion, but has deeper lyrics that are as timely today as then. Rob Tyner's vocals are superb. Dual guitars of Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith are as good as they get. One of the ten best rock albums of ALL TIME.

I bought this album on vinyl when it was brand new, and it sounds even more relevant and bold now than it did nearly 30 years ago. So much live stuff has been released in the last few years, that if you have not heard "High Time" it may shock you how tight and skilled these guys were in the studio. The production is a little murky in places (could have used some of the crispness of "Back in The USA") but the material is great (with the only exception being the last half of "Future/Now") with layer on layer of heavy guitar work. It's also sad, cause this was the end of the MC5. All that unfulfilled potential wasted by drugs and ego. This album should have been huge...
