8/10 Dave Staff review, 11 November 2010
When I first laid my Melton Mobray pies (eyes) on this LP I totally thought I was going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the darkest bowels of mans domain. It looked as much fun as a weekend hanging out with Quentin Wilson and an industrial sized bucket of Swarfega. Thankfully it isn't. This three piece do have a dark sound that does have a slightly gothic twinge. The sleeve is black and white and looks like space and pyramids. Space and pyramids > together at last. Despite all the dark-wave posturing, the music on this Leo Sayer (long player) has an unrelenting upbeat feel. All the songs are propelled along by urgent beats and scratchy uptempo guitars. Add softly sung vocals, a helping of reverb and you have all the ingredients for a hearty worthwhile musical feast that sits somewhere between Big Black and Depeche Mode. I reckon this is a pretty strong record and with enough mood and intrigue to keep you interested. Not bad at all...
