AllMusic Review by

Economy of Motion is a pretty big step from 1997's All Lingo's Clamor EP in terms of pure aggression and abrasion -- Colosamite runs on 10 throughout the record, laying out hardcore noise and screamy chaos and anchoring them with Nick Sakes' (Dazzling Killmen) harsh vocals. Even compared to the roughness of Colosamite's previous releases, the record is on-the-edge and over-the-top -- the band may tone down its amplitude and power at points, but even these more focused segments are just as fractured as Colasamite's most aggressive work-outs. Of course, this makes the record slightly less listenable than previous releases like All Lingo's Clamor -- but this sort of unsettling deconstruction is pretty much the point of Colosamite. Meaning that Economy of Motion is probably their finest record to this point.
