All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This sampler from the late, lamented I.R.S. Records is an amazingly mixed bag.

There are also stopovers in the land of aggressive proto-techno Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine's "Lenny and Terence", bhangra Sahotas's "Hass Hogia", and experimental house William Orbit's "Water From a Vine Leaf -- Acid Bath Mix".

In retrospect, it's easy to see why this label went belly-up: there hasn't been room in the marketplace for a label this interesting and unpredictable in ages. Other highlights include "Bubbling Hot" by Ranking Roger and Pato Banton a pretty blatant rehash of "Pato and Roger a Go Talk," not to mention of "Pato and Roger Come Again" and the monotonous but strangely cute "Sploosh" by Ozric Tentacles.
