AllMusic Review by Dean Carlson

Organic Noise is a collaboration between Goa futurists Planet B.E.N. and X-Dream. Existing almost entirely on the low end, the two producers' work together carries a lot of weight despite a drawn-out pace and a tendency to forget whether or not to make an extreme attempt at affording the listener a pseudo-hallucinogenic experience. "Polaris" is one of the better showpieces of the album. With bass that sounds like bubbling lava, it builds and dips between house and psych-trance and escalates higher and higher within a context of the genre in a non-obvious way. You expect the rest of the album to run a little long and focus too much on listener manipulation, and it does, but Vacuum Tube remains a well-powered LP of out-of-body sonic pursuits.
