    True artists find a voice and know how far they can stretch its ability to communicate. Trans Am have done just that with instrumental rock which relies on synthesizers almost as much as techno does. They can be at one moment abrasively digital, then quietly ambient by the end of the track. Such vacillation could be overly ambitious for many groups, but Trans Am manages to pull it off in a way that makes you think the song could have gone nowhere else. By working a contrasting harsh delivery and tranquil coda into a single piece naturally, Trans Am prove themselves deft masters of their craft. ~ Tom Schulte

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (5/01, p.72) - "...Draws on the overblown '70s pomp of Bachman Turner Overdrive, welding it to restless Krautrock repetition..."
    NME (Magazine) (4/11/98, p.39) - 6 (out of 10) - "...this is art music with its muddy boots on and a rough, willfully unfinished feel....[Trans Am intercut] their brutalist axe rumbles with electronic hiccups, hums and farts..."
