Stimmung walks the tightrope between good fun and self-indulgence -- primarily the work of Camper Van Beethoven alumni Jonathan Segel and Victor Krummenacher, Dent's music tosses industrial, new age, techno, pop, country and reggae sounds into a blender, then rips off the lid and lets the finished product splatter everywhere. The end result is music that deserves to be commended for its sheer bravery and eclecticism, yet it's simply not engaging over an extended period; Stimmung was probably much more fun to record than it is to listen to. ~ Jason Ankeny
