"Chemical Playschool 10 is yet another in a long string of collections of Dots outtakes, improvisations and meanderings. This one is particularly different in that there are a handful of would-be solo pieces by singer Edward Ka-Spel. Apparently their content and mood fit the overall goals of the release, and we should be glad they are included, as the Ka-Spel tracks are perhaps the best on the disc. "Scarlet Wish" opens the disc up with one of the best tracks he's recorded to date. On the whole this release captures the gloomier side of the band fairly well, along with their more improvisational moments. "The Man with the Cut-Glass Heart" and "Glasshouse" are both much obviously darker than the more psychedelic material the Dots had been recording on releases like "Hallway of the Gods." On the whole, not quite as massive or all encompassing as "Chemical Playschool 8 & 9", but quite compelling in terms of content and mood."
Their Best Yet!

"They were awesome in the early 1980's with their avant guard post-punk sound. Moody and dark with glimmers of the absurd, like Kafka put to music. I lost track of them during the late '80s and '90s only to buy this album on a whim and discover they are better than ever. Part gothic, part industrial, definitely out of the ordinary, this album will not disappoint anyone who yearns for something different."

"breathtaking electronics resonate throughout, ranging from the dreamy to the throbbing. a really terrific record. edward told me to write these paragraphs, but got terribly irritated having to negotiate all these horrid "R's"."
