AllMusic Review by

A three-track stormer near the top of the Leaf label's already stunning repertoire. Witchman's John Roome is clearly out for more than club tracks here, with the A-side covered entirely by the chilling, 15-plus-minute "Offworld." While Roome does tend to stretch some of his ideas a bit thin (particularly the breakbeat delays that dominate much of his work), his attention to space and atmosphere is nothing short of cinematic.
