AllMusic Review by

Johnny Dowd's dark, twisted keyboard funk seems to have bubbled up from some evil underworld. The angular "Mother Love" grinds and groans with ominous textures, throbbing guitar, and chanted background vocals like the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion playing a gig on the banks of the River Styx. "Daddy's Girl" is equally disturbed, with lovely vocals by Kim Sherwood-Caso that are reminiscent of Juliee Cruise, creepy organs, and an other-worldly shuffle that would fit well over the dream sequences in David Lynch's Twin Peaks.
