AllMusic Review by

Kreader's sister, Ellie, takes vocal lead on the first track, "Sink or Swim." Ellie Kreader has a dream voice, a voice with the elasticity and how-dee-do of K.T. Oslin, able to convey every little quirk of emotion. The tracks are dark, rhythmic masterpieces that call to mind early work by Eurythmics. Ben Kreader's voice (he sings "Blizzard") is big, bluesy and R&B tinged. These two tracks are from an elaborate multimedia performance Ben presents that involves rear screen projection, hand-held lights, glowsticks, road flares, flashlights, and pinwheels that pulls 17 of his songs into a narrative story line.
