For me "Walking Through Heaven" is one of the highlights, together with "Talk To Me", "Love Cuts" and "Driving Blind". Four out of 9 cuts exuberates brilliance, the rest are anything but mediocre -- it's just that good. Terrific LP!

Industrial / Experimental / Electro / Nu-Wave crossover. The 2 standout tracks here for me are "Love Cuts", an epic and drawn out dark and twisted song about addiction to physical pain (lyrics - "Cuts like a knife / cut me with your knife"), and "Driving blind", a slow electronic beat again with the very distinctive vocal of Cosey Fanni Tooti! You could almost call them the orignal Adult., as the electro and female monotone vocal are very similar. This is great, fairly slow and laid back electro beats with a nu-wave punk feel and dark lyrics. A lovely LP.
