AllMusic Review by

As if a four-track EP weren't enough, Peter Rehberg (Pita) and Ramon Bauer and Andi Piper (General Magic) return to the icebox graveyard to assemble an entire album of tracks sourced from ailing refrigerators. Even better produced and with an overall tighter, more composed feel than the similarly conceived Mego 12-inch, "Fridge Trax," Live and Final Fridge is somehow an improvement over its short-form predecessor (a potentially silly assessment until one actually hears it). Again, the sounds are lively and amazing in their diversity, with skittery beats, zinging electronics, and any number of bizarre noises forcing you to pay that much more attention to the sounds of your own fridge each time you open the door.
