AllMusic Review by

Thanks to the shot production on all three songs from Don't Derail, the Contrail's pop of a guitar-and-drum combo is completely muffled by an echoed reverb effect. This disquieting, lo-fi indie-trash provides only a burden of slow-paced noise. Although the Contrail attempts to stretch the musical boundaries with their post-punk intentions and knack for minimal experimentation, what they accomplish instead is an arrangement of uncomfortable shrilling on both sides of this EP.
