"If this music was a movie, it would be a film noir remake of Saturday NightFever....like a nightmare take on Donna Summer... a sultry prowl 'n' growl through a musical landscape as atramentous as anything Tricky's ever done... ...like the Modern Jazz Quartet gone stoner-techno. It's time to hit the post-industrial dystopian disco.” NEMESIS TO GO, UK
