AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
All of the controversy over "Cop Killer" and Body Count's debut obscured one important fact -- they're not a very good band. Born Dead makes that clear by replicating all of Body Count -- all of the plodding riffs, embarrassing singing, obvious attempts at social commentary, and the relentless "Body Count, Body Count, Body Count, BC, BC, BC" chants. All that's missing is humor. Not even the worst material on Born Dead is unintentionally funny; it's just embarrassing. Ice-T can pull this material off live; on record, his band just sounds like a heavy metal relic from the late '80s.
