AllMusic Review by

A multicultural, cosmopolitan stew that takes the formula of their first collaboration (Bloodwood) and shakes it up, adding new ideas and elements, including a 16-minute improvised didgeridoo solo. Didge player Dargin is in fine form here, making his instruments sing, throb, grunt, sound like birds, trains and traffic, and otherwise coming up with an amazing range of sounds. Atherton provides congenial support on keyboards, guitars and assorted other instruments. The main focus, though, is Dargin, both on the new material and on the two cuts from Bloodwood.
