"Sun City Girls at their ethnic-forging best. 'The Venerable Song (The Meaning of Which Is No Longer Known)' is a perfect chant for the post-American Western Hemisphere. Then comes the Eastern/psychedelic guitar freak-out 'Omani Red Light.' And 'The Multiple Hallucinations of an Assassin' is a prime example of that low scratchy sound we've grown to know and love over the last umpteen years, building into another Rick Bishop Eastern-guitar statement." — Slippy Town Guide to Sound Recordings, 2003

"The sequencing [of the tracks] gives you an ideal feel for the mesmerizing frequencies this band was intent on emitting during the height of their live activity years, an era in American music when they were as threatening, confounding and potentially awe-inspiring as anyone that could be named. Yet another classic document." — Forced Exposure catalog
