- Summary: No, it's not *that* kind of drum'n'bass album. Instead, Rhode Island's Lightning Bolt literally consists of just two instrumentalists on drum and bass, and together the pair generate an experimental sonic fury on this, their second full-length.
- Record Label: Load
- Genre(s): Indie, Rock, Experimental

Wonderful Rainbow is a brilliant record and has upped the ante tremendously for Lightning Bolt. They managed to take every single aspect that made Ride the Skies such a great record and intensify it severely, all the while showcasing incredibly tight and complex musicianship knowing when to hold in the reins and when to set them on fire.

MojoStellar noise pollution. [May 2003, p.99]
MagnetSounds like classic overcompensation, a racket on wheels trying to live up to its hype by merely playing over it. [#59, p.98]
