Prog Reviewer
3 stars You can hear a bit of mainstreaming of their sound here-cabaret stylings on "Jalousie", straight-ahead pop-rock on "Pigman", Latin stylings on "Mañana"-but it's the exception rather than the rule still. "A Morning Excuse", however short, can hardly be called "normal", what with the eccentric vocals and weird synthesizer noises, and probably would scare off most mainstream listeners.

The longer tracks clearly are the high points. "Mozambique" is utterly harrowing, with one of Renate's most powerful vocal performances. Chris takes the lead for "Apocalyptic Bore", which is laden with soaring Floydian guitarwork. Both these tunes are good enough to justify the purchase.
