AllMusic Review by

Somewhere between the industrial noise of the early years and his later soundtrack work, Graeme Revell was in a period of transition. Digitalis Ambigua, Gold and Poison (often shortened to simply Gold and Poison) carried on from the noisy but danceable electro-funk of Junk Funk, but smoothes out the edges. In fact, the album shifts gears partway through, going from slick and almost throwaway dance music to moody atmospheric instrumentals. It's a jarring change, but it ultimately saves the album from being a waste of time, and serves as a document of Revell turning a corner in his musical career.
