AllMusic Review by

This could have been another wearisomely abstracted exercise in pop music bulimia, but seeing as how the Portland trio take Ultravox, Phil Collins, and the Bonzo Dog Band and churn them into a gossamer paste of grating devolution and ColecoVision cheek, criticism becomes moot over a band that'd probably be the first to admit they're total crap. If they're not taking Kraftwerk for a ride through Ren & Stimpy, as in the squiggle bomp of "Cold Embrace," they're supplying soundtracks to short films called The Bikini Bandits Go Dutch. It is, perhaps, what you'd play to friends to stop them from ever talking to you again. Unusually dreadful.
