Strengths and Weaknesses:

Strengths : An ability which we share with Captain Beefheart for juxtaposition, e.g. dub bass and drums, static humming, a crackling and unintelligible Chinese conversation, possibly like something that might come from Cologne, a Burnt Friedman remix perhaps.

Weaknesses : The tendency to snatch a couple of loops, run them together with the occasional Raygun break for two minutes, and to make reviewers think it's probably harder to sound this simple.
