AllMusic Review by

Journey to the Martian Polar Cap includes four songs, each of which explores the different stylistic tendencies practiced by the Martian. Two of the four are more as mood-establishing songs than dancefloor music; the remaining two function more as DJ-orientated material. Most notably, Model 500 teams up with the Martian for "Search Your Feelings," an otherwise excellent piece if not for some awkward synth-riffs that are a bit jarring to the ear and do nothing in the realm of dancefloor utility. If one can get past the strange, mechanically grating riff, "Search Your Feelings" has some fine tonal melodies, a nicely arranged mid-frequency bass riff, and the subtle appearance of a 303 acid line near its conclusion. This release has its moments; unfortunately, they aren't consistent throughout the record.
