    Fans of the first two Suicide albums will love Martin Rev's solo debut. The lone vocal track, 'Baby Oh Baby' (essentially Suicide with Rev's smokier, more gravelly voice substituting for Alan Vega's), is of course a classic in its own right, but the instrumental pieces are just as compelling. 'Mari,' a love song without words, recycles the piano bass line from Suicide's 'Dream Baby Dream' yet manages to create an identity all its own, while 'Temptation' draws out the eerie, hypnotic celeste that lurked in the background of Suicide's 'Frankie Teardrop' and makes it the central feature of the composition.

    The original six-song album was released in 1980. The five bonus tracks that appear on the CD were recorded in 1991 and have a Harold Faltermeyer-esque, dance-pop feel. The highlights of this batch are 'Coal Train' (which itself appropriates the bass line from Rev's earlier 'Temptation' and gradually builds to a mid-paced, almost sinister momentum) and 'Wes' (whose sassy, synthetic horn riff turns gorgeously spectral with a wash of dissonant noise, like the audio on an old VHS tape becoming fainter with the passage of years).
