Prog Reviewer
1 stars Dear Manuel was quite surprising with his output during the late seventies / early eighties. The music from "Correlations" and "Belle Alliance" had little to do with their first two great albums. And one can say only after a few seconds of "Mosquito Dance", that this album is going to be a very poor adventure.

Poor electro beats, lifeless music, repetition to the bones. Press next quickly to avoid pure boredom. The problem you will be facing is that the next track isn't any better and the next one ("Pretty Papaya") is of the same texture: a combination of electro music with reggae (same recipe during "Don't Stop The Fan" and "Monsoon")! Ouch, it hurts quite a bit. A rather weak album it is.

"Tropical" rhythms are hardly bearable ("Nights In Sweat") and frankly out of purpose from such a band. The only positive aspect of this album is that it lasts for less than forty minutes? I can't rate this album with more than one star.
