    The colors of the view, the hill, and the sky blend into one swirling colorful, confusing masterpiece. Just when you begin to think you might reach overload, you land cleanly on the ground, on your feet. You just listened to Alien in a Garbage Dump.
  2. It's chewing up something familiar and making it weird again. Life gives you lemons, so you make Alien in a Garbage Dump.
  3. Alien in a Garbage Dump sounds like the work of a noise veteran relaxing and trying out whatever comes to mind, tossing out ideas without worrying if every one of them sticks. And in this case, this approach yields considerable rewards, the noise equivalent of summertime jams.
  4. An album like Alien in a Garbage Dump is interesting for its first spin, when the listener has the resources to make something of it. Past that, you’ll need to make an almost ritual commitment to teasing out the clashes that push the music forward.
  5. It is a collection of aural noodling designed mostly out of chance rather than intellectually and/or emotionally. Thus, it is best enjoyed as an experiment rather than a possible purveyor of memorable singles and easy fun.
  6. It’s arty, it’s farty, it’s at times strangely hypnotic and if you leave it on your record collection it will make you look really cool. If that’s your thing...
