AllMusic Review by

The second album from Indiana-based experimental duo Melk the G6-49 follows the same path as their debut, Glossolalia: bass and drums playing sludgy lo-fi noise rock without guitars or keyboards, but with occasional interpolations of unidentifiable noise. The random noise elements are slightly closer to the forefront of the songs than on the first album, although not enough to make much difference anywhere beyond the centerpiece duo of "Apollyon" and "Burst into Song You Mountains," which are underlaid by a distorted found-sound vocal tape that effectively builds tension through the two connected songs. The rest of this short and fairly uninspired album sounds like half-hearted jams by some stoner rock quartet whose singer and guitarist have gone out for a smoke. Barring a complete rethink of their sound and vision, Melk the G6-49 may have already run out of ideas.
