Reviews:

"Dark 1982 epic that convincingly tows the line located somewhere between Joy Division and Echo and the Bunnymen" (Magnet, 03/2005)

"Still sounds like a hip and stark adjunct to the cool alternative sounds that came outta Liverpool post-punk. Vulnerable, zingy and intelligent" (Whisperin' & Hollerin' 04/2005)

"A record in keeping with the glum, post-punk noises of the early 1980s" (Leonard's Lair, 04/2005)

"Fans awaiting a new Echo and the Bunnymen album - or better yet, hoping a hitherto undiscovered old one is unearthed - your prayers have been answered. Belated reissue by a much-lauded band" (Record Collector, 6/2005)
