AllMusic Review by Dacia A. Blodgett-Williams
Alternative CCM group's depressing 1997 release with lyrics that suggest they're about a murder/suicide attempt. The actual goal of the album isn't quite clear, nor is there any indication whatsoever whether Chin is a real or fictional person. The pictures of an individual of Asian descent, presumably Chin, seem real enough. Neither liner notes nor the group's two main web sites offer any insight into the album's history or purpose. As a result, the listener is left entirely depressed and completely clueless as to what they were supposed to feel, if anything at all. It would probably be wiser to purchase one of the group's other albums as a starting point instead, since this one is so aimless.
