Prog Reviewer
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.
