AllMusic Review by

Pillared by a pair of roots-inspired covers (Duran Duran's "Wild Boys," the Vibrators' "Troops of Tomorrow"), Deathline International filter their coldwave industrialism through a new wave sieve for their third album, sounding like a cross between Skinny Puppy and the Human League. Though the ideological stance of the band is as poorly fleshed out as most "political" rock groups, the darkly elegant "Murder" promises that, should the band concentrate on less impenetrable lyrics, they may just develop a wider following. Not wholly original, but a successful rearranging of parts nonetheless.
