Norman Records gives the following review:
This brisk little cassette captures some of Jason Trachtenburg's finest moments as a silly and touching songwriter. These songs were recorded in 1993 and feature raw banjo playing, sweet gang vocals and that high-pitched coo of Tratchenburg's. 'Let The Fishes Do The Asking' is one for fans of anti-folk that recalls Daniel Johnston and Jeffrey Lewis, as well as those who love quick, in-and-out pop songs a la Guided By Voices.
