IMO, this is the point where Cabaret Voltaire really got "Electro", in the Bambaataa sense of it, or to put it differently, where they offered the best of their own trademark "white electrofunk" side ; relentess beats, dubby breaks, always with that sharp and aggressive sound, echoed guitars, and this heavy round synth bass that they used a lot, especially in the Covenant LP and in Richard H Kirk solo project (Black Jesus Voice, Ugly Spirit). Deeply original, and still hypnotic, 20 years later!
