          The A-side of this record features some of most appallingly eighties sounding music I have heard in a long time. I remember first hearing another of their tracks around the time of this release and it was far, far better. Timeless. But the A-side of this most certainly isn't timeless. To use the word 'dated' is an understatement.

          Unlike the B-side, however. The difference is startling. The music is far more atmospheric and without the jarring synth cords of the Miami Vice-like A-side.

          And Maria Marquez's beautiful voice is something to die for. They've gone for a more traditional/folk-style angle and it works. Perhaps Marquez's Venezuelan origins have had an influence on the proceedings. But with her talent it would be a waste not to let her have an influence!

          Well worth looking for whether a fan of Harris or Marquez but not a patch on their classic "Canto Del Pilon".
