    The words are the last thing I get to when I listen to music. I loved this disc until I hit that point (love that ny club beat open to starlovers!). There is some really creepy religion/grooming stuff going on here. Starlovers, Teenage Sensation, Superhuman, all make my skin crawl.

      Since the pandemic shutdown I started to dig through my many crates of promos from the Record Pool Days. Found this buried in non related genres. Wow, what a find. I may have listen to this when I got it late 1999 but really forgot about it. Just a great chill album to listen to. So glad I found this. My latest .go to album. My copy is the Limited Edition Vinyl Album PRO-A-9807

        I got this CD a while back in the late 90's, and it holds up pretty well with all the pop and programming that's been around since then. The album tries to mirror apollo four fourty's "blue" album (IMO) and tries to utilize lyrics and tone like Pulp. They had a distinctive, yet common sound but also had a way of mixing that created this good disc. I had the version which had the remixing software (which has phased out through time, but still is fun). It was an interesting experience of a disc, but not good enough to advise that anyone pay full price for the disc now.
