AllMusic Review by

Recorded live in the studio with a minimum of overdubs, At the Vanishing Point is Kustomized's most effective outing yet, its stripped-down, visceral sound proving an ideal fit not only with solid Peter Prescott originals like "The One That Got Away" and the menacing instrumental opener "Handcuffs," but also with covers ranging from the surf obscurity "Yacky Do" to Government Issue's "Bored to Death" to the standard "Harlem Nocturne." As they did in Sugar, new drummer Malcolm Travis' piledriver rhythms keep the music spiralling forward at all times, forcing guitarists Prescott and Edd Yazijian to keep their more indulgently noisy impulses in check -- At the Vanishing Point is lean and mean, all muscle and no fat.
