    Double side A! Classic new wave music riff in side A, while the great surprise is 'Tarantula', a mid tempo ahead of its time for track construction, maybe vocal seems little detuned but the global result is brilliant.

      The original mix of 'Breakdown' is to me a synthpop masterpiece, with sharp production and a poisonous, sophisticated voice that interferes in your head not unlike Gina X's 'No GDM' wit a little less cabaret attitude. Hard to find as for some reason it was deleted quite quickly by 4AD and the band, re-recorded and replaced in the stores by a vastly inferior version known as 'Breakdown (Second Version)'.
