AllMusic Review by

No less hard-rocking than McLaren Furnace Room from two years before, the second album from this promising Canadian band is broader. A new bassist (Ken Tizzard), new lyricist (singer Daniel Greaves) and new producer (Mr. Colson) virtually guarantee some change. But guitarist Joey Serlin still rocks loudly yet lyrically. And the band's urgency is undiminished, although "All Uncovered" showcases its more reflective side, and "Middle East" mixes in some exotic percussion. This is a strong album, full of anger, desire, hope and other strong emotions the band seems to feed off.
