AllMusic Review by

After opening with the "Obligatory Drone," Mile Wide descends into experimental instrumental scratching, with tortured strings pulling in every direction. Thankfully, the group's arrangements frequently produce a surprising prettiness that transcends the abrasive deconstruction of the experimentalism. One might wish that these two elements offset and highlighted one another, but this isn't the case -- the more avant-garde side of Mile Wide's composition is as appealing as anything else in the genre, but the group's more emotive moments could leave the listener wishing they would stay in this vein.
