AllMusic Review by

Eighties revivalist Baby Dayliner's second album consolidates the trashy chic of his debut with a confident, fully realized set that still relies heavily on the beatbox rhythms and cut-price synthesizer sounds that have become his hallmark. Conjuring 1980s favorites like Soft Cell and OMD, the postmodern cabaret singer croons his way through contemporary easy-listening facsimiles like "At Least" and "Go on Baby"; his sincerity in constructing these pop replicas means they come off as more charming than ironic.
