AllMusic Review by

An on-again/off-again side-project involving MLO/2Player/Twisted Science maestro Jon Tye, Slack Dog layer cold, abrasive synth patches over brisk, distorted beats in a ponderous fusion of jungle, indusrial, and experimental/avant-garde. This self-titled first blast was released on Tye's own Lo label (the group have also issued a 7-inch on the obscure Flowershop label), and features a pair of remixes from Luke "Wagon Christ" Vibert and Bedouin Ascent. The flip's mixes beat the A-side hand over fist, with Vibert's Plug guise rearing up via "Ruff Dog"'s clean, jittery jungle workout and the Bedouin mix fusing heavy syncopation with droney, brooding melodies.
