"It sounds even more prescient than the studio album - Program for Light is like the Run DMC/Aerosmith video re-enacted by Marshal Jefferson and Gang of Four" (The Wire, 06/2002)
"In 1985 at the Danceteria I saw a British group called Section 25 playing to fledgling B-boys in the downstairs space. I'd never heard drum machines through a PA and had no idea how punishing they could be. I couldn't hear a single word but I couldn't get their weird sound out of my head... The whole scene floated the fjord between the icy Factory scene in England and uptempo NYC edit tracks by Big Apple Productions and the Latin Rascals. Charging and droning, blowing my tiny mind" (Sasha Frere-Jones, The Wire, 12/2001)
