Enjoyable Album , but not so good as the previous in my opinion, we have different type of musics here, dark , relaxing, for dancing, and emotional. It sounds like there is too much bass in the record, but that is how Modern love records likes to edit their releases. My favorite track here is : "Science And Industry" while "damage" is the one i like less.

Here to echo the remarks about the quality of pressing. Extremely disappointing and very apparent on a recording with so much dynamic range. The music is of course A+ pressing a C-

Got into this album over the past year and recently found it while digging at a local shop. This is one that grew on me as I listened and has become a favorite. Stoked.

There is a charm about it, without a doubt. In terms of the atmosphere and the beats. Though in terms of composition, it somehow seems that this album does not know what it wants to be. An abstract experimental piece or more of an alternative release with kind of a lofty eighties feel and a traditional singer. I understand that it attempts to be a bit of both, but I believe that it is not certain that it was achieved and therefore, the praise it receives seems a bit nonreflective.

Noise and pops on side A (slightly on D as well). Pretty consistent throughout, and very apparent (particularly on side A, which is very ambient). Not terribly loud, but definitely distracting on tracks that aren't terribly loud.

Fine album otherwise, pressing sounds good in the non-ambient tracks.

This album is definitely a slow burner!! Stick with it till around the third or fourth listen and it will hit the spot!! " Music to make dirty love to your old lady to "

I'm a big fan of this album but Andy Stott live is HORRIBLE. His set wasn't even remotely close to his signature sound. Lots of gun shots and drum and bass rhythms. Such bullshit. Not sure what the hell he was thinking trying to switch things up so drastically.

Two years after Andy Stott's astounding LUXURY PROBLEMS comes FAITH IN STRANGERS, another album of dark, experimental techno. But those expecting thick, grimy house will be surprised, first by the ambient harmonics of "Time Away," which could have been a lost Biosphere track, then the spare, mysterious electro of "Violence." But fear not, the latter track finds its way into the sludge in no time, even as it's the closest Stott has come to a traditional 'song' in some while. "On Oath" also lets the vocals take center stage, and a synth-pop beat kicks off "Science and Industry," before the strings come in to fill the space. But the arpeggios of "No Surrender" immediately demand attention, even as they decay into twinkles and bone-rattling percussion before once again regaining strength. "How It Was" returns to house rhythms with its thick underpinnings, a throwback almost to MERCILESS, while "Damage" engages in some industrial -strength electro. But the title track is perhaps the most surprising, offering up some soulful breaks for an almost pop feel (though not without some feedback to remind you who you're dealing with), and "Missing" takes the album out on what could be an ambient pagan chant. Always surprising, always intriguing.
