AllMusic Review by

Full Circle, being a remix album, can only be a patchy affair, and this is mainly because tracks are remixed by a variety of mixers, including Manchester-based 808 State. In addition there are new Davies recordings, a cover of Marc Bolan's "Desdemona," and a three-part collage, "Melt Steel..." sampling fragments of a Bolan interview. Of the mixes, some are better than others: "Colours" (as in man of..) and "Blue Noise" ("Electric Blue") are among the best. Elsewhere, Sidewalk's "Shot Down/The Mountain" gets a re-jig (or a good kick up the pants, as you like it) as "Kilamanjaro," and Bill Lsswell's play on "Love in Motion" has the Divinyls' Christina Amphlett in fine form vocally and verbally. Monstrosities appear as "MLK" and "She Comes," ironically the ones Davies cites as best, but then he said that about Code Blue too.
