I liked this thing as soon as I heard it. I'm just a sucker for almost anything that reminds me of The Wraith. Or Miami Vice. In Sheffield. This sounds well futuristic. Each song is such an unrelenting assault on the senses, it nearly made me cream. Some of the tracks envelop you in rich synths, some parts pummel you with thrashy guitar and thudding percussion. They also know how to appeal to your sensitive side, with some moments that could've come straight from the mind (or synth) of Vangelis. There are some great moments on this record, from the emotive "Come to Me" to the harsh techno squelch of "Crash Tactics" through to the rousing uplifting climax of final track "Tiger Girl". It sometimes ventures into Vessels territory, which for me is a big no-no, but aside from that I reckon this album is fucking ace... I'm off now. I have to obey my directives! 1 - uphold the public trust, 2 - protect the innocent, 3 - uphold the law......
