AllMusic Review by

With a chaotic blend of screaming vocals, pounding guitars, and vintage keyboards, the crazy hybrid of the Grand Island provides an eclectic taste of structured noise that doesn't get lost in the musical jumbo. Added to the darker hints of complex rhythm that are comparable to a drunken Fugazi or Jesus Lizard -- minus the exaggerated anger -- is the Grand Island's originality, showcased on both "Fortune Cookie" and "Buckler" without going overboard on the melodrama.
