"In what appears to be a match made in heaven (hell?), the Boredoms have enlisted Mo' Wax's UNKLE (James Lavelle and Richard File) to assemble this 'Dysfunctional Monster Jam', a lengthy (by Warner Japan standards) 46:01 non-stop DJ mix of various records from the Eye and Co.'s catalog, and it's a killer. This is trance music in the Paleolithic sense of the word, with occasional breakbeats and scratching (courtesy of the Nextmen); more of a reminder that the Boredoms still have a lot more in common with Amon Duul than Amon Tobin. Considering the fact that the Boredoms have been leaning more towards a non-stop approach both live and on record, always relying on a core musical vision that would be termed percussive, this works on a number of levels. Phasing, the stray bird or two, plenty of vertiginous edits, flutes, the heavy guitar on occasion, and Eye's vocals that resemble the chattering of the DMT Elves that sit at an infinite number of typewriters and control the universe. Oh, and the Deputy Dawg Rorschach test on the mini-CD poster by Naohiro Ukawa and Ausgang is quite a stunner in it's own right. Unique is as unique does." -- Billy Kiely
