AllMusic Review by

This was the first of Skinny Puppy's ongoing splinter projects, featuring both cEvin Key and Dwayne Goettel teamed up with Edward Ka-Spel of the Legendary Pink Dots...a veritable industrial supergroup. With Key and Goettel handling all of the music and Ka-Spel taking care of the lyrics and vocals, it mixes together to create a dreamy electronic mix that owes something to both Puppy and the Dots, but is nonetheless totally different. Think Pink Floyd on a scary electronic acid trip and you're getting close. "You and Me and Rainbows" is monolithic at nearly 17 minutes, but it's worth every second. The CD reissue adds the Tear Garden EP at the end.
