AllMusic Review by

The debut release for the pioneering noise imprint, James Rodriguez' Elsie + Jack, is a globe-trotting compilation of the brightest and best experimental/noise artists. From Europe come Crawl Unit, Shifts and Rapoon, while Southeast Asia represents with several tracks from Zeni Geva guitarist Mitsuru Tabata. The vibrant Michigan noise-rock scene also appears, with tracks by Füxa, Flutter and Elsie + Jack flagship act Monera (including Rodriguez, Ted Klug, Brian Hauch and John Bush). The range of sounds and atmospheres is quite unexpected, and well worthy of praise.
