"Jim Molina, Brian Tomczak and I really tried to write some tasty hits on this one, but the band split up before it got off the ground. We played a couple (mostly disappointing) live shows, but without a bass player we couldn't seem to pull it off as well as in the comfortable confines of the studio. Nevertheless, I felt pretty good about the songs here and definitely think I wrote some of my best & most interesting pop. I thought Jim really put a nice string part on "Boj" which took it to a higher level. "Hormesis", a song about breast cancer victims climbing Mt. McKinley, goes from lush to dissonant and then ends with a ridiculous unison solo. There's some really nice vibe & marimba work on "Asleep" and the ending sweeps in with power. "To Be" has a nice funky groove, and "Infrared" (a song about a plane crash) is a little tipping of the hat to the High Llamas. Some people have complained about a stylistic unevenness to the record, but think the variations on the experimental "Terraform" help to tie it all together."
- Sweigert [Crop Circle Collective] We think this is a real good progressive record that recalls some of the work that Oklahoma composers Kurt Rongey ("Book in Hand", Underground Railroad) and David Bagsby have done. It fuses prog rock with avant-garde textures and modern experimental tendancies to great effect.
