When can we look forward to the reasessment and re-release of this under rated lp? Which hipster dj and/or hipster label needs to give this their seal of approval before people act as though they always liked this full length? I love loving this album and seeing ''purists'' turn their nose up. Seriously funky ass dance album without a dull moment.

A great LP from DAF if you like their EBM roots merged with Synthpop. Not a bad song from the lot. Voulez Vous Part II has some great sounds especially the nice drums during the mixout at the end. Brothers is probably their best track from a dance POV. Lots of innovative sounds and chords coming from this LP.

I have a Beppe Loda cassette with an alternate mix of "Sex Up" on it that's driving me crazy. Does anybody out there know where I can find this version? The mix is from 1987 & it's much rawer than the LP mix. Cheers!

was for me back in 1986 a really strong album. now after almost 3 decades i hear this album again. OPIUM sounds like Cabaret Voltaire (in a good sense) : a strong electric tune which might survived the time excellent. BROTHERS was THE tune in the Discos i went. VOULEZ VOUS is totally funky at all. And so the album goes on in a quite different mix. remarkable und underrated.

Everybody knows and loves the classic three albums. This is the hidden gem, very different from the hard sounds of 1980-82. Daf reformed in '85, released a couple of singles and then this; gay as fuck and very funky. Stand-out tracks are Brothers and Voulez Vous pts 1 & 2.
