This review is excerpted from Clayton's July 5, 2004 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

Considering its size, my home state of Connecticut boasts more than its share of prog acts -- Fates Warning, Paranoise, Scapeland Wish, Second Sufis, Crucible, and After The Fall, to name a few. Now we've got Sugarfist, too. Start with the ska of No Doubt. Mix in a little hardcore. While you?re at it, toss in a good helping of Frank Zappa and Thinking Plague. Shake well with a heap of imagination and coolness. What do you get? Sugarfist! Sugarfist isn't for everyone, though. They're out there where timid ears fear to tread. But if you can dig seriously crazy sounds performed by a talented crew of adventurous players, you'll eat this up. To make this tasty treat even sweeter, the recording is top-notch and the packaging is total pro. Even their Web site is a work of art. Here?s a band who?s deadly serious about their careers. Way to go, Sugarfist!
