"A mixture of garage, avant, psychedelic-rock. At times they are on the repetitive, hypnotizing (sometimes annoying) side. Starting out with noise this goes on to rock and psych domains where it has this garage-rock feel. The sound is (perhaps deliberately or due to lack of funds) fuzzy and on the low-fi/tech end. At times it sounds like a demo, a sloppy live recording or unreleased material that wasn’t mixed produced properly. But then there’s the occasional improvement in both the sound and the purposefulness of the music." – by "Sonic Frontiers" (USA)

"What I like the most about this Moscow-based trio is that when focused, their material is titillating. Motherfathers insists in being experimental, so at their most obtuse and deranged the band’s avant aspirations succeed by building tense moods and obviously, experimental work outs. Quite frankly, the sound of Kolchack! takes its time to grown on you. For the first five or six songs this just sounds like a rehearsal, it is not until 'Go!' that the band’s abilities come afloat; there Motherfathers seem to be channeling Helmet by way of Nick Cave; the heavy guitars are simple and poignant, the tempo is tired and incisive." – "Deaf Sparrow" (USA)

"Avant garage punk combined with industrial noise, psychedelic improv and no wave... Some of the songs on this disc are frenzied noise rock with junkyard percussion along the lines of a distinctly Russian version of Pussy Galore, while others drift through trippy guitar loops, sampled rhythms, electronic noise and weird Russian crooning, or lock into a menacing distorted krautrock groove, pulsating drums propelling ominous sounding synths and groaning buzzsaw basslines. Motherfathers split the album up between the noisy, distorted rock and the improvised psych-noise jams, moving from spacey free-jazz to far-out psychedelic clatter to gloomy post-punk (like the excellent 'Mannequin' and 'Chemicals Gone To Her Head') on to several tracks that sound a bit like The Birthday Party, all skronked-out and violent and festooned with feedback and slash and burn guitars. What a weird fucking album. It goes all over the place, a dadaist mashup of low-fi industrial skum, Am Rep influenced noise rock, Acid Mothers-style psychedelia, krautrock, Gothy post-punk, weirdo jazz/noise improvisation... Definitely not for everyone though; Motherfathers experimental noise/punk weirdness is way, way out." – by "Crucial Blast" (USA)
