AllMusic Review by

Although quite a bit more angular and crude than his Rather Interesting material, Softcore's meditations on rhythm and texture stretch the limits of the mixing desk in engaging, often fascinating ways. If later Atom Heart releases such as BASS and Machine Paisley point to an ever more complex digital desktop aesthetic, Softcore is analog almost to a fault, with Schmidt's ideas occasionally outstripping his ability to conceal the technique behind them.
