Reception[edit]

AllMusic2.5/5 stars[2]

The AllMusic review by Joslyn Layne notes that "Overall, it is very atmospheric, with sections of drawn-out tones that slowly build theater mists in the background of a deserted sense of waiting. Balancing stretches of this kind are sections of bent, mellow country... Lacking contrast, this one is definite background music, and although well done, it is also probably the least interesting of Zorn's film scores".[2]
