AllMusic Review by

This 1993 album shows the band relying less on the sonic experimentation that marked their later work, than on pure punk exuberance. Tracks like "Ride" and "Draag" seethe with a manic fury that creates a pervading sense of tension and urgency throughout the album. Also, the band's pop sensibilities shine through the hectic clatter of the title track and "Martian Dance Invasion," on which guitarist Michelle Bodine assumes vocal duties. On these tracks and others are indications of the frantic cacophony that would be further developed on Brainiac's later albums.
