Alternative Press (10/99, pp.106,108) - 4 out of 5 - "...unbelievably gorgeous instrumental passages amid all the deconstructivist breakdowns of sterotypical counterculture claptrap....[Mayo] Thompson seems to have anticipated the post-rock phenomenon by about 30 years."
The Wire (8/99, p.59) - "...sounds like the avatars of avant rock are trying to erect a monument to their own pioneering spirit...a collection of occasionally wayward electronic pop songs, and a barrage of fragmentary edits and noise collages..."
New Music Monthly (7/99, p.55) - "...notably fractured takes on the band's normally malformed pop with blasts of improvisatory clatter....an exhaustingly off-kilter effort."
