AllMusic Review by

Back when house and industrial looked like they might actually crack into the mainstream, bands like Sheep on Drugs were popping up all around the underground. Boasting techno beats and rapped vocals with British accents, the Sheep made fun, club-friendly music that never did anything too original, but was at least commendable for its power on the dancefloor. The lyrics cater to the scene they were a part of; songs like "Acid Test" and "Mary Jane" are disco drug anthems while "Uberman" and "Motorbike" are boasts about "success" and sexual exploits. The music is very connected to 1993, but fans of house music may find this more interesting than the average listener. Do not be fooled by the claims that this is industrial music; there is nothing remotely like Ministry or Einsturzende Neubauten here.
