Dining With The Sharks is the ninth studio album by Blue Cheer. Released in 1991 it is notably the only studio album to feature one-time guitarist Dieter Saller and features a cover of "Foxy Lady" by Jimi Hendrix. Reception of this record ranges from average to poor, for example AllMusic (2/5 stars) describing it having "adopted a faceless musical direction during this "revival" period that was somewhat derivative of artists that had (in all likelihood) been influenced by the band."[1] Only Solitaire (giving the album a thumbs down) closes their review with the following sentiment on the album: "If this were at least «comically» bad, I could have found it in me to say a few kind words — but since it is «boringly bad», which is really the worst kind of bad there is".[2]
