"Witness the driving Deaf or the improvised take on Grind, where trad-angst is eschewed for matters, dare I say, a little bit funky. The cauterising Gift of Danger meanwhile is as good an artifact of the band's experimental leanings as you'll find. A vibrant snapshot of Manchesters beating post-punk heart, this is stirring stuff" (City Life, 12/2000)

"A dry, earnest sound. They had their moments" (Q, 03/2001)
