|Review ~ D. Kelvin, Forgotten Songs|
|"In 1981, this LP, recorded with Rich La Bonte, was created and released without raising more interest from both the press and the public. Strange since this album is really great, and offers a novative approach of the usual weird rock 'n' roll experimentations of Mr Fowley... totally experimental, with Fowley's narrative apparently mad storytelling on various musical background, from space rockabilly to cosmic synth ambiances. Strangely, it works when it should make you run away..."|
|Review ~ Tom Schulte, All Music Guide|
|"Allen Ginsberg (R.I.P.) produced by John Giorno. That's what this Fowley release often makes me think. It's mostly multi-tracked spoken word from Kim with minimal musical accompaniment. If I still did drugs, I think I'd like to take drugs to this album. It is full of humor and observations. Frank Zappa pointed out the 'plastic people', Fowley marks the 'Polaroid people'. Four and a half postcards from the other side of the sun."|
