AllMusic Review by

Intelligence Agent... offers a bit more structure to the chromatic noise of Rake's previous recordings -- yes, there's all of the abstract guitar noise that comes with their territory, and all of the airy, seemingly random drumming and distant wisps of human voice, but the record takes shape as it goes along, sometimes sounding like the universe's most chaotic punk band and other times resembling Japan's heavy garage/psych scene. When this sense of fractured organization peeks from behind the collage of noise that lies on the album's surface, there are glimpses of something rather appealing going on.
