AllMusic Review by

Samm Bennett writes unusual (to put it mildly) lyrics, sings in an even more unorthodox manner and plays intriguing guitar and percussion. This isn't strictly rock, pop, or jazz, although it contains elements of each, with the lyrics ranging from humorous to weird to cynical. Bennett's songs seldom flow, his solos are often disjointed, and his vocals won't electrify or amaze anyone. Yet, there are attractive bits and pieces, and the instrumental contributions of Chunk add to the air of unpredictability, chaos and experimentation. It's certainly not for every or even most tastes, but those willing to take a chance may find some worthwhile things.
