AllMusic Review by

Although this has been described as fuzzy, Japanese noise pop, Icy Spicy Coolmint features more of an odd hybrid that contains whimsical, female vocals -- at times, resembling Blonde Redhead -- surfy guitar leads, and an electrical drum machine backing. Although the formula is original, the end result provides to be long winded -- especially on the very lengthy B-side instrumental of "Translucent." With the punky, fast-paced "Criminal Line" being the only eye opener on this EP, the rest of Icy Spicy Coolmint's styling falls flat.
