Such a tremendous release. Big, infectious, juggernaut hip-hop inspired beats with the typical early '90s Jack Dangers intensity. Dubby remixes with big rubbery, particularly "Paradise Now". The b-sides are great, as well. "Love Mad" was originally on the Volume magazine series and is a creepily airy track, somewhere between 3D's whispered vocals on "Blue Lines"-era Massive Attack and prime Wax Trax of that era. "Children of the Beloved" is a nice slice of live noise assault.
