"The results are good: Alan Hempsall's vocals and Robert Davenport's guitar still sound of their time, while on songs such as The Presence and Deaf the tunes and playing still have the era's sense of power and menace" (Q magazine, 08/2000)
"Touchstones in the Factory firmament... Crispy Ambulance mutate their angst into something much more redemptive, and often beautiful" (City Life, 07/2000)
"The Crispies certainly mastered chiming, hypnotic guitar lines, and for a bunch of old geezers the band still plays with muscle aplenty, investing each song with a passionate urgency that the crowd responds to with evident enthusiasm. Must have been a great night" (amazon.com)
