AllMusic Review by

Bare Minimum's first full-length lays out a frequently impressive construction of semi-derivative (and very post-Slint) loud/soft rock -there's a good deal of polish to this angular sound, and the band's highly dynamic twin-guitar attack is composed enough to be rather compelling at times. The record's only real flaw is a tendency toward turbulence and bombast which doesn't always suit the band -- 1997's Can't Cure the Nailbiters dips into more subtle and melodic territory which tends to be a bit more appealing.
