AllMusic Review by

Pieced together in a continuous stream of music (à la Sgt. Pepper's, ) the 13 tracks on Truly's first full-length release comprise a loosely based concept album filled with overdriven guitar and the soothing yet slightly menacing voice of singer Robert Roth. Songs like "Blue Flame Ford" and "Blue Lights" further the swirling, psychedelic sound present on the group's early Sub Pop EPs, but show an even more refined sense of songwriting and arranging. With all but three of the tracks clocking in at over four minutes, the album demands a great deal of the listener, creating an alternate world of edgy psychedelia in the process.
