AllMusic Review by

A sequel to Dragon Pop and the Limance Yeah. A collection of remaining songs that did not fit in the album, Evil Gifts definitely does not sound like leftovers thrown together. Strangely enough, this fourth album by Manuel J. Grotesque conveys a greater feeling of unity than the previous, Dragon Pop. Opening with a huge rock piece ("Sound") and introducing electronic experimentation, Evil Gifts reveals a new facet of Manuel's works. Indeed, this album centers around his rock side: Heavy guitar riffs intermingle with computer sounds, noises, experimentation, roars, and howls.
