All Music Guide - Matthew Robinson
If this new solo album by the legendary writer of "Light My Fire" is supposed to be the soundtrack to a movie, someone must have spilled the canister on the cutting room floor because this album is all over the place! From the dry, slow drums and repetitive licks of "Snake Oil" to the heavy and tribal pounds and gargly backing vocals of "Out of the Mood," this cuts from scene to scene and from idea to idea with little rhyme or rhythm. "Idolatry" is jazzy but in a sax-y way. Perhaps it is the soundtrack to the love scene of the mind Krieger appears wont to create.

If this new solo album by the legendary writer of "Light My Fire" is supposed to be the soundtrack to a movie, someone must have spilled the canister on the cutting room floor because this album is all over the place! From the dry, slow drums and repetitive licks of "Snake Oil" to the heavy and tribal pounds and gargly backing vocals of "Out of the Mood," this cuts from scene to scene and from idea to idea with little rhyme or rhythm. "Idolatry" is jazzy but in a sax-y way. Perhaps it is the soundtrack to the love scene of the mind Krieger appears wont to create. Similarly, the noir-y accelerations of "Missionary Jam" suggest a bungled chase scene. The beguilingly foreboding '80s guitar play of "Haunted Spouse" which in itself sounds like a movie title and the funky warning of "Red Alert" are both appropriately or at least cleverly entitled, but that may be the best that can be said of them. Taking from other films and shows, "Psychadelicate" goes from the boudoir to the West Side as in "Story" and "Skip" drops a little Gong Show groove among Krieger's effected low-gear pedals. The real payoff comes when Krieger takes from his own repertoire and lets the closing credits roll over a mad remix of "Peace Frog" again appropriately titled "War Toad" which combines Krieger's otherwise greatly missing signature sound with the eternal ragings of "Mr. Mojo Risin."
