AllMusic Review by

Silent during Britain's acid-house revolution, Cabaret Voltaire returned in 1990 with a clever house crossover album, for which they actually traveled to Chicago and recorded with house producer Marshall Jefferson in an early British-American meeting of the minds. The result is an album more groovy than nasty, as Mallinder's vocals sound much more pop-oriented than before. Despite possessing a somewhat dated feel even soon after its release, the album showed CV's continued contributions to the growing electronic revolution.
