AllMusic Review by

Revolving Paint Dream was a psychedelic pop band that ingested a variety of influences with a wildly involuntary, style-annihilating internal grace. Many Creation Records names were involved in both Off to Heaven and Mother Watch Me Burn, but it was the latter where the insulated personality of Primal Scream's Andrew Innes took over and grinded icy, anonymous sampledelia, shimmery Pastels pop, and anachronistic New York heroin ballads under a jet-black boot of dub-lined feedback, recklessly plumbing the band's record collections for ideas like an excited teenager who wants to lend you everything, splattering the past three decades with a kaleidoscopic spray of pop music's flesh and guts. If they'd only stopped to look to the future, they'd have been unstoppable.
