"Romus' fiery romp is a no-holds barred exposition. He slices through steel with accuracy and ease, equating to a jovial soundscape, scraped with intensifying solos and Everett's colorific cymbals hits. They galvanize your neural system from start to finish, while projecting a take no prisoners approach throughout."
- Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
"On the flip side of growing pains, you’ve got plain old pains growing. Rent lances them with blazing sax, and on this release the crisp use of electronics sets things in stark relief... Stellar unions include “Sledge of the Hedge”, where it feels like contact triggers are launched on drum strikes, but it ends up with a smoldering finish over static sparks."
- Thurston Hunger, KFJC on-Line Reviews
"There’s plenty of gristle in this group to begin with, and the electronics spin them off balance and into utterly bizarre realms." KZSU, Zookeeper Online
" All in all Interesting stuff from these pioneers."
