3 stars A surprisingly upbeat and tuneful album with mostly little short tracks this time around. It sounds quite different from all previous releases probably due to the fact that there's a cool fretless bass utilised throughout. There's also a greater number of keyboards which suits me fine. The addition of reverbed violin is quite good for a change too.

I find myself enjoying this a lot until some clown decides to give his saxophone an airing on 'Détournements De Chants'. I don't know who it is, but it leaves my face looking like I'm smelling a crate of six week old dead fish, I last had this experience whilst listening to Gary Numan's awful 'Warriors' LP in '83. What was heading for any easy four stars is deservedly punished and reduced to three.
