Review by russellk
2 stars Unlikely to appeal to members of this site.

The title track is one of the better tracks from NO-MAN's 1996 album 'Wild Opera', but for once the supporting songs lack weight. Even recruiting 'telephone terrorist' SCANNER to provide a drum 'n' bass remix of the title track does not lift the single. 'Urban Disco' is ironic fun, but it is featured in 1997's 'Dry Cleaning Ray' and so does not make this release any more compelling. 'Where I'm Calling From' is a typical minimalist NO-MAN record closer, melancholic without the menace of a 'Sicknote' or 'Born Simple'.

Competent single release, but that's all.

Review by Mellotron Storm
2 stars This could have been so much better.The opening and closing tracks are very good songs but the three in between really bring this EP down to where I can't even recommend it.

"Housewives Hooked On Heroin" opens with vocals as the sound slowly builds. It kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes then settles back as this contrast continues. Some guitar 3 1/2 minutes in. Great lyrics on this one. "Hit The Ceiling" is an uptempo song with a heavy beat throughout. Female vocal melodies come and go. "Housewives Hooked On Methadane (Scannes Mix)" is like a dance mix of the title track and is a failure in my opinion. "Urban Disco" continues the dance beat, it gets a little heavier 2 1/2 minutes in. "Where I'm Calling From" features Robert Fripp doing soundscapes and Ian Carr playing trumpet. Two freaking legends right there folks. This is a fantastic song and it almost makes me forget the previous three tracks.

Fans only for this EP.
