"True to its name, this collection of songs really does evoke the feeling of wandering about within one’s own psyche, the fleeting glimpses of so many disorganized thoughts playing tantalizingly across the mind’s eye in a dream-like state from which one cannot escape. Blissfully bizarre!"
-Ian Hall, Chain DLK
"The sort of album I can curl up with next to the fire--or shoot straight into my veins for a pure rush. It's really cool when an album can do so much at once.
-J. Worley, Aiding & Abetting
"most of what's on display here more closely resembles the hallucinatory sound of wave transmissions from the dream world. This is abstract music for those crossing the threshold between the waking world and the inner landscape of dreams, with all the peculiar logic and mystery that such a juxtaposition entails. "
-RKF, Dead Angel
"A lot of sonic ideas are crammed into these sixteen tracks, each a completecsoundscape that works to form a complete whole environment...Driven by homemade instruments, woodwinds and percussion, along with at times haunting vocals and harmonies, any of the tracks are rich and effecting..."
-Mike Wood, Foxy Digitalis
"Everyone involved here is experimenting as can be seen for example with the vocals in "Freak Out and Die" (kind of Robert Plant-ish in some parts). Different tempos and different structures are developed here creating different worlds of experimentation on each tune, Every tune here is a surprise for the listener and a showcase of good musicianship and originality. A release that is totally recommended."
"In each piece we find strange breaks and twists... Eddie the Rat is a promising project of theatrical and dramatical potencies."
-Dolf Mulder, Vital Weekly
"...sounds of another world, the devil a sevenheaded-Martin, said, you know from stories through music and the disc comes to have moments of very high level."
-Eduardo Chagas, Jazz e Arredores
"Fans of Residents, Shockabilly, other demented artists who twist perfectly “normal” instruments into anything but. Improv feel at times, overall demented abuse of guitars, trumpets, male and female vocals. Smarmy burlesque tones, pots and pans dirtiness a la Pussy Galore or Nick Cave doing dishes. Moments of Lemon Kittens, Danielle Dax. Definitely very strange stuff from these local favorites."
-KZSU 90.1 FM Stanford CA
"It’s as if Captain Beefheart, Zappa and Tom Waits all took hits from the same bong and got together for an impromptu jam session."
