AllMusic Review by

This is, perhaps, a two-disc blind date. Magnificent, awkward early moments, that nervous politeness and curiosity, the way you get that sinking feeling after a half-hour that you've been ill-prepared for deliberative arguments about Woody Allen and waffles. Certainly, after a banging start from the majestic Chemical Brothers "I Think I'm In Love" remix and some exceedingly eager displays of gruff, acerbic prog house backflips by Azymuth and Ortus, Deep Dish can only disappoint. It's too long to warrant patience for all the varying strands of well-mixed -- but boorish -- disillusionment and mutual rejection. And maybe the fact that it throbs like a club-groping consolation prize and rings as false as a rehearsed peck on the cheek is enough cause to play it safe with the Yoshitoshi brand name from now on.
