AllMusic Review by

MX-80 Sound members Bruce Anderson and Dale Sophiea continue their post-rock experimentation on this album of microscopic sound studies that touch on avant-garde, minimalism, and dark ambient within 12 refined songs. Seemingly edited down from longer improvisational pieces, the theme that the duo adopts is the prescription of drugs, and the effective sensations act as scores for these interpretations. Titles "Metallic Taste," "Sensitivity to Light," and "Vertigo" may suggest the direction of the music, which throughout the recording is a deep study of atmosphere and juxtaposition of sounds, sustaining an engaging if somewhat dark listening experience.
