Released in 1991 at the height of the rave culture in the UK you can see that this album has dated somewhat in terms of sound. Having said that it's still a fun listen to mainly for the singles "In Yer Face" and "Cubik". But there's a lot of hidden gems in here. Bernard Sumner also makes an appearance ( it wouldn't be the last time he collaborated with techno acts ) and it's a nice song. In short while the production values may leave this a somewhat dated but it can still pack an effective punch.
