Spin - p.91"Their valley-girl-stuck-in-an-S&M-theme-park-aesthetic was too exuberant for any radio format."
Q - 11/00, p.1143 stars out of 5 - "...Its moshpit vibe suggests seminal industrial loons Revolting Cocks; witness the squirming distortion of 'Vulcan'....A cover of The Smiths' 'How Soon Is Now' is cheeky and inspired..."
Uncut - 9/01, p.1033 stars out of 5 - "...A melting pot of Eighties electro, synth rock, power pop and love ballads..."
CMJ - 7/00, p.61"...Welds sturdy pop hooks onto a techno-industrial framework that supports singer Tobey Torres' subversive sexuality....a well-wrought collection of modern pop gems."
Melody Maker - 12/12/00, p.534.5 stars out of 5 - "...It sound slike expansive, shary post hip-hop, beguilingly sinister....swallowed in a howling maelstrom of Mazzy manson industrial glam....Just play it loud, OK?"

Snake River Conspiracy is the brainchild of vocalist Tobey Torres and multi-instrumentalist/programmer Jason Slater (who was also a founding member of Third Eye Blind). SONIC JIHAD is combination of melody and fury, a musical marriage that at its heart combines Nine Inch Nails and Garbage.
"You and Your Friend" seems like a conventional love song on the surface--until the third member of the song's fantasy is revealed--while "Breed" gets its texture from splashes of acoustic instruments over a programmed rhythm track. Slater and Torres pay tribute to their favorite Star Trek hero on "Vulcan," complete with classic Star Trek sound effects, and a repeated lyric that makes a radio-friendly version unlikely; and "Somebody Hates You" makes use of a Marilyn Manson/Euro dance groove in its trashing of rock star wannabes. SRC also shows its affinity for covers, with a diabolical sounding version of the Cure's "Love Song," featuring a sinister octave-bouncing synth bass, and an edgy rendition of The Smiths' "How Soon is Now."
