AllMusic Review by

Producer Kramer (Shimmy Disc, Bongwater) worked hard with Tadpole to work sound into every nook and cranny of the four tracks here. The dual guitars and vocals are a diffuse nebula of space rock. These soaking sounds bring to mind easy comparisons to Spacemen 3 and Galaxie 500. Layer upon layer is dovetailed together for a final product that is dense, to a certain extent psychedelic. Instead of giving into mere aural saturation and rhythm there is enough of a weird melody to each track to make the EP as listenable as Syd Barret-era Pink Floyd.
