AllMusic Review by

Soak the Saddle contains jumbled, blathering, and spastic noise rock coupled with vocals shifting in and out of coherence, rambling on about quirky dirty-sex abstractions and childish dirty-diaper themes. Arab on Radar bends the thumbs of music way back -- nearly to the point of breaking -- in the tradition of fellow noise rockers Melt Banana, and with nearly as much chaotic structure as the babbling Storm & Stress. This is experimental art punk with a large set of balls that have been kicked an uncountable number of times; it's messy and discordant, but falls into discernible lines of rock just enough to make some overactive scissor-style punk rock.
