REVIEWS

“THE EXCELLENT COVER ART SAYS IT ALL: BURNING RUBBER. WE’RE TALKING FLEXING, THROBBING, SKRONKING, SCREAMING JAZZ-NOISE-ROCK WITH PLENTY OF LOW END. BUT IT ISN’T JUST CHAOTIC BLITZ; THERE’S REAL, DEAL INTERPLAY: A BECOMING OF ONE, SO TO SPEAK. FILE NEXT TO MACHINE GUN, THE CHICAGO OF RUSSELL AND VANDERMARK, BORBETOMAGUS, SHARROCK AND ALL THAT GOOD STUFF. MAX VOLUME, PEOPLE! “
JUSTIN FARRAR

“IT’S EVIDENT THAT THE MUSICIANS GAVE IT THEIR ALL ON THIS BRASH OUTING… THE BAND ZOOMS IN FOR THE KILL AS THEY AGGRESSIVELY TREAD THROUGH HAZARDOUS MUSICAL TERRAIN AMID A TAKE NO PRISONERS’ MODE OF OPERATION.”
GLENN ASTARITA, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“GREAT BEGINNING OF A HOPEFULLY LONG-LASTING STORY; NOW SHUT UP, PLAY LOUD AND FEEL YOUR ASS KICKED.”
MASSIMO RICCI, TOUCHING EXTREMES

“WHAT COMES OUT OF THE SPEAKERS WHEN YOU PUT THE STYLUS DOWN IS MORE OF A GODZILLA TAP-DANCE. … THE MEATY SATISFACTION DEALT BY THE PEELED EYE SUGGESTS THAT FREE IMPROV APPRENTICESHIP IS A WORTHY PRE-ROCK TUTELAGE.”
BILL MEYER, DUSTEDMAGAZINE

“THE PEELED EYE CREATES MUSIC THAT IS GREATER THAN ANY ONE OF THE FOUR. MORE SOON, PLEASE, SHAMELESS.”
JOHN EYLES, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“THIS IS NOT JUST A HELL OF NOISE, BUT FREE ROCK AT HIS BEST.”
DOLF MULDER, VITAL WEEKLY

“IT’S AS THOUGH THESE FOUR MUSICIANS ARE APPLYING A VAST ELECTRIC CURRENT TO THE PRIMORDIAL OOZE OF THEIR SONGS, USING THEIR CONSIDERABLE ENERGY TO ASSEMBLE AN EMBRYONIC PRECURSOR OF HORN-FRONTED INSTRUMENTAL NOISE ROCK.”
PHILIP MONTORO, CHICAGO READER

“TOGETHER FOUR NOTORIOUS ENGINEERS DESIGN A VEHICLE OF A DIFFERENT KIND. NO FRILLS. SLEEK DESIGN. SCHEMATIC WITHOUT HIERARCHY: RHIZOME ELECTRONICS. FREEJAZZSAX GEARBOX. IN THREE SECONDS FROM ZERO TO TWELVE TONES…NO MORE SPACE FOR VANITIES. IN THIS DARK MIRACLE MUSICAL RIDE.”
STEROID, FREISTIL
