  1. The production is impeccable. [#9]
  2. This is Weird War at their most minimal and stoned.
  3. 70
    An album of abundant, aberrant fun. [May 2005, p.102]
  4. 70
    It's plenty funky, just less in-your-face and with a disco polish. [May 2005, p.103]
  5. It is both accessible and challenging at times, and a few bloopers aside a perfectly worthy release, providing the purchaser can tolerate Ian Svenonius' occasional lapses into horrendously irritating vocal histrionics.
  6. Warped glam-funk-disco in the spirit of Frank Zappa.
  7. The album gets really repetitive and just drones into the background.

    seems a bit dull at first but after a couple plays you realize how awesome this record is.
