Described as "a very exciting release for anyone with a penchant for tape aesthetics" (Geiger), "a fascinating body of work... intriguing, seductive and musical" (Ampersand Etcetera), as managing "to be intellectually and emotionally engaging in a way that no other record has for me this year" (Cows Are Just Food), a "f**king amazing tape loop record!" (Second Layer) and as "one of the craziest things I've heard in ages and yet completely compelling" (Norman Records). Anti-Gravity Bunny said "they take tape manipulation to places I never thought of, ambient doom, grooved psych, gauzy pink bliss, debased spaced journeys, all with the help of impeccably juxtaposed random shit. Echolalia is about as crazy erratic as a record can get while still being fucking fantastic, exceedingly listenable, and coherent."
