AllMusic Review by

Scott Herren's second release as Delarosa & Asora (following the 1997 full-length Sleep Method Suite) is a subdued masterpiece, a blend of turntablist beats and indie-style minimalist trance (in perfect line with Tortoise's Millions Now Living Will Never Die). Standard beats drift in and out of the mix while Herren programs an excellent mélange of deep, dark chords, slowly shifting basslines, and fuzzy processed effects. On a reissue by Pearineel in 2002, the EP added a fourth track ("Vs. Boah") whose beats-and-bass framework and stuttered vocal make it sound like a blend of Delarosa and Prefuse 73.
