Growling, grungy Acid by those two veterans, and probably the most exciting (and abrasive) project Mike Ink has ever been involved with. Quite far-fetched from round kickdrums and glossy, sliding basslines, this is an all-out distorted assault on the senses. The hi-hats are typically Walker, and so is the monotony on several tracks. The eerie, melodic layer on Lovecore might be Mike Ink-like (it certainly is not Walker), but the muddiness and the accumulation of layers of sounds point more towards Martin Damm than Wolfgang. Rumour has it that one out of the two was going through relationship turbulences at the time and that it was the source of the title. Perhaps this could be why it sounds so unusual.
Lovecore (She) is the least interesting of the pack with a very clubby approach and an irritating, processed voice sample.
Lovecore (He) is very similar but meaner, hence more appealing.
Bewarehouse and especially Please Don't Goa are the muddiest. Stretching beyond reasonable timeframes, the latter is a thirteen-minute, monotonous Acid jam that rolls like the Crawling Chaos and, quite logically, takes its full meaning when played from beginning to end.
The most ferocious track is definitely Church Of The Poison Mind: venomous arrows shot straight through the heart, incarnated by a shower of extremely high-pitched Acid traits over another rolling, growling, armoured car of a 303. If it does not induce sudden Death, it might as well be the climax of a set.
