Time Out says
Since its late-’70s formation, wildly experimental outfit Controlled Bleeding has issued innumerable releases in whatever medium made sense at the time. Further vexing to the would-be discographer: The nature of Controlled Bleeding’s music has been as much of a grab bag as its format, from old-school industrial to in-the-red noise. The new Controlled Bleeding disc, Odes to Bubbler, showcases loopy punk fusion, as though the Ventures had honed their surf-style instrumentals at CBGB, or Neu! had gone No Wave.
