    Every track sounds broken. Gloriously broken. I've been a fan of Tobacco/BMSR for years, and have never heard anything quite like this. It's quite good.

    This album is the epitome of an artist that is regressing in his work. As a fan of Tobacco's previous LPs, this one doesn't live up to my expectations at all. It's a dull, lethargic, half-hearted attempt that leaves me disappointed and completely unfulfilled.

    Ultima II Massage is ostentatiously big and frequently clever. [Jul 2014, p.83]
  2. As an album, it’s uneven, but its stream of highlights make this a fun listen, perfect for the summer.

    While few tracks rise to the level of aggression promised by its introduction, Ultima II Massage contains enough wild ideas to maintain an engaging level of oddity.
