AllMusic Review by

Combines two mini-LPs into a quirky album that mutates halfway from somewhat jazzy pop songs into drifting instrumentals. As such, it's a nicely abbreviated view of the two sides of Nelson's music, with some real highlights in "Acceleration" and "The Real Adventure." Yellow Magic Orchestra drummer Yukihiro Takahashi guests on several cuts.
