AllMusic Review by

The live electro-acoustical group Circular Firing Squad (Eva Baumgartner, Xopher Davidson, David Kwan, and Tim Walters) has made a mysterious and unique CD which was recorded live directly to DAT. The sounds are astonishing and the combinations are original and innovative. Three long sections allow the listener to wander and wonder, like reading a good sci-fi novel, especially since there are no program liner notes: "Floating Threshold" (23:39, universal ambience with something like a saxophone in the middle), "Inertialess Drive" (12:51 of relentless, positive, inervating polyrhythms from "out there"), and "Moraine" (21:46, an eerie religious service of cosmic proportions).
