"an hour of dense, lengthy, doomy instrumental rock improvisations ... With two electric guitars, a violin, and drums, the quartet plays trance rock that's dissonant and noisy in some respects, but also somewhat subdued and more imbued with riffs and structure than out-and-out noise bands. Percolating fuzzy, distorted guitar lines are the backbone of most of these six tracks... somewhat similar to, and more accessible than, the most avant-garde instrumental guitar frenzy jams you might have heard on early Velvet Underground bootlegs. The mood is like that of a lonely outer space journey, on a long trip to an unknown destination with plenty of supplies for sustenance, but not much or nothing in the way of company or amusement. Japanese-like progressions of notes anchor one of the more memorable songs, "Louse Dances for Laos," and the closing "Liquid Facets" gets into more reflective tones, with guitar glides not much unlike those heard in the spaciest early-'70s Pink Floyd. At other times, notes and riffs give way to washes of drone and white noise" - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
