AllMusic Review by

Few film and television composers employ electronics as effectively and innovatively as Mark Snow, but Disturbing Behavior boasts few of the attributes for which he is renowned -- a fragmented, often abstract collection of beeps, bleeps and blips largely bereft of conventional melodic structures; it makes for supremely frustrating listening outside of its cinematic context. Snow's signature mastery of evocative, otherworldly electronic textures notwithstanding, Disturbing Behavior is little more than an assemblage of strange drones and buzzes that promise much but deliver little -- there is no cohesion or climax here, just a series of confounding soundscapes that add up to almost nothing.
