Totally astonishing album. I liked his first one, Metamatic, but the following albums really were not my direction. The sound of this album is interesting, sound sources are mainly analogue synths, but everything is treated and mixed in a modern studio. What turns out is a modern production with the "warm" analogue synth sound. Very creative treatment of vocals also, and I would like to add, John Foxx' vocals are really good. Fine texts!

When Kraftwerk only manage to re-sell their old stuff in 3-D packaging, other artists take the lead.

But shame on the music industry for not picking up an album like this.

This is my favorite Foxx album since "The Garden" and it's the best sounding album he's done since "Systems Of Romance."
