AllMusic Review by

A stronger release than Taylor's previous EP, this hook-laden record shows much in the way of maturity and growth as an artist. It's still very political, but this time leaning a bit further to the left, discussing such issues as racism in the church ("We Don't Need No Colour Code") and human rights violations worldwide ("Over My Dead Body"). The songwriting is killer overall. The catchy "Meat the Press" calls for solidarity among members of the evangelical church to promote better depiction of Christianity in the media. Dance number "Am I in Sync?" features a catchy keyboard line that slowly goes out of sync with the rest of the instruments. A groundbreaking record for its time.
