A song about drinking rat poison and liking it more than either water or wine. Garage-rock proto-punks the Sonics-without their raw fuzzed-buzz and Gerry Roslie’s roll’n’roll howl-played rock that couldn’t help but shock and awe. –Zach Baron. On the verses, Get Ready is a tense and unforgiving stomper, but the chorus turns the song into a sweeping drama, a transcendent whoop of joy-and throughout it all, Eddie Kendricks’ angelic falsetto floats overhead like a balloon caught in a gust of wind.
