AllMusic Review by

As surely as the CD cover sits in a soft, blurry focus, so too does the material contained within this well-intentioned, but musically misguided project. The majority of songs on this disjointed collection of misses were written and/or produced by Clay Howell, who calls himself "a general piddler in the studio whose goal is to get somebody to let him stay home and do nothing but music." A Pussy Tourette stinker (because it is taken out of the context of Pussy's fantastic concept album In Hi-Fi), "Bracelettes," opens up the album. Other outlandish tracks include "Over the Rainbow," performed by the Women's Chorus Of Dallas (quite lovely), "Hand In Hand" (a feeble "We Are the World" clone), and David Pace's (Mr. Gay All-American 1994) lame stab at country & western "singing."
