    Pumping out a hit release in 1993, Sarah Cracknell and her musicians created as much a noisy-industrial-busy city guide as an album. There're railroad station sounds, phone rings, car horns etc on this CD. Finally, this techno-electronic-house mix was recorded with Sara's melody parts. Replacing the song Mario's Cafe with its visions, one can imagine where you want to be, but the tracks Railway Jam and Avenue give you a feeling to walk around a night city etc. Listening to this album is great fun!
