AllMusic Review by

This is a nice split proving that Lexington, KY, isn't completely overrun with horse racing fanatics and hillbillies. The Speedtrain, for example, gently belt out three loosely structured, female-fronted pop gems that are accompanied by a Farfisa organ. Then there's the Pontius Copilot side that has more of an influence of power pop and early Elvis Costello, except a lot sloppier. Production quirks aside, this is a handy split EP that not only delivers a few nice pop songs, but it also breaks down geographical stereotypes.
