“The album kicks off with opener ‘Black Sky Absorbs You In’, a two minute rager that puts the band’s obvious Jesus Lizard influence way up front. […] ‘One Final First Kiss’ spends four minutes in David Yow inspired Hell, with some completely unhinged vocals, heavy bass and drum work, and some guitar playing that just comes at you from all directions. […] ‘The Cloud I Hold’ is a three minute slab of absolute vocal and musical insanity. How do you describe this? It’s non-stop fury, righteous anger channeled through precise instrumentation camouflaged by absolutely thunderous riffing.
You’re gonna need a nap after you listen to this thing.” – Rock! Shock! Pop!
