AllMusic Review by

A quite impressive live album from these short-lived (1993-94) emocore pioneers. Their music spans a broad range of emotions, from delicate meandering notes to rough and throbbing gushes of organized noise. They could be thought of as a dynamic cross between Unwound and Current. This set is recorded as a live college radio broadcast, through almost all of which a voice is heard whispering mostly inaudible passages and an old 1930s female blues singer wails from a record. The vocals are very powerful -- wandering on and off key and changing from a mutter to a scream beautifully. All in all, this epic record should be given the attention it deserves.
