    I have a handful of SPK, and this is my favorite, quite an evolution from the clangy, industrial stuff they did prior. Everything after this though, in my opinion, is - I'm just shaking my head in ..no , thank you Machine Age Voodoo! I really wish I could un-hear "Off the Deep End", but thats a different review! THIS release, however, is one of the moodiest, evocative pieces of music to come out of the 80s, I feel comfortable saying.

      Picked this up in Leeds about 20 years. A real hidden gem.
