AllMusic Review by

Considering that three years had passed since their previous full-length studio effort, little ground is broken here. The mood has turned more ominous and dour, though not to any great purpose. The Sturm-und-Drang, hoarsely screamed vocals also make something of a comeback, again not to any great purpose. However, their skills at crafting tribalistic instrumental rock remain intact, and "Pois Den Mila Yia Ti Lambri" (with its martial accents) and "Lebanon 2000" (with its early Pink Floyd-ish rumble) are among their better tracks. The 2001 CD reissue on Mobilization adds instrumental versions of a few of the songs.
