AllMusic4.5/5 stars[2]

Trouser Press, in an ambiguous review, described the album as "shockingly low-key."[3] AllMusic described the album as "Einstürzende Neubauten at their unsettling, gripping, and tension-ridden best" and "the group's most subdued and measured work to that point, organic dark ambient that rarely utilized the chaos and cacaphony [sic] for which they had become known."[2]
