AllMusic Review by

Here's heavy stuff from the Gulf North -- your basic organ-synth-guitar-percussion combo, drum machine and all, in a really homogenous "new sound" with strong local rhythms and melodies. Even the Van Halen solo guitar meshes with the rhythms, and yet more amazing, the drum machine works for a change. This is like nothing from that neck of the desert (though there are connections, like raï): it's decidedly nifty.
