“A collision of avant-garde jazz, the wild, wooly experiments of composer Harry Partch, Beatnik poetry, shattered noise, shards of black box theater, the sinister weirdness lurking behind the childlike chaos of The Muppet Show. Somewhere in there are moments of calm and one drifts away on a bed of acoustic jazz meditations that recall Ralph Towner‘s best, most imaginative work in that world during the 1970s; strains of minimalism, lysergic opera, and ancient campfire songs emerge before we’re thrust back into a core of molten weirdness that provides total catharsis.” – PopMatters

“When it gets weird and uncomfortable for most musically, that means it’s something interesting to listen to, and with THOSE DARN GNOMES we hit the mother load. Jazz, Noise, Grind, Hardcore, Ambient, Gospel, Folk and Avant elements are just the tip of the iceberg. […] You really just need to hear this to understand and it really goes from Jazz, Metal, Noise, to Avant Wonders. There are very few bands I could even begin to tell you to listen to (John Zorn, Mike Patton, Secret Chiefs 3, Pain Killers, Melt Banana, Fleurety, When, Bogus Blimp, and Yakuza). Do you get how bizarre I’m going here. You need to experience the wonder and majesty of this off the wall album. Some of you are just going to fucking hate it, others will worship this. THOSE DARN GNOMES have gotten into my brain and will not leave now.” – The Doorway To
