AllMusic Review by

By 1997, there's nothing really new to the Galactic Cowboys' brand of progressive metal -- rich harmony vocals layered over bluesy, sun-baked psychedelic guitar riffing, plus intellectual, often bizarre lyrics. A distinct note of bitterness about the band's lack of success and anger with the music industry has crept into many of the songs, some ("Tomorrow") more overt than others. The songwriting is still pretty strong, and the group's fans will find this another enjoyable release.
