The cover art features a Hindu goddess painting by Conrad Keely called Portrait of Kali. The back art is another painting, Tribute to Ed Wicklander by James Neslo, a nod to a Seattle-based sculptor.[12]

Critical reception[]

Trouser Press wrote that "a huge guitar sound (My Bloody Valentine huge) dominates, buttressed by swift drum rolls and snare cracks."[13]
