AllMusic Review by

A collision of rattling percussion, spacy synthesizer, and guitar noises, this collaboration between downtown New York avant-garde drummer William Hooker and Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo conjures the freewheeling, creation of gaseous stars and youthful constellations. Hooker's whirlwind assault and battery is the engine that drives the process, while Ranaldo's electronic experiments with extremes of sonic light and shade provide moments of chaos and calm beauty.
