This album is one of those little gems that are released now and again. As a band Scarfo were shamefully outstripped in sales by their London contempories Placebo, who they resemble in guitar sound. They are however vastly superior then Brian Molko's Mob, having more than just a frontman to their music. ELO, Alkaline and Kosmanaut No. 7 are the stand out tracks, at once powerful and emotional, every track holds it s own. This absence of pointless filling, and the emotion in each song means that this bands demise shall rightly be much lamented in years to come.

after seeing SCARFO appear with PLACEBO at Liecester,the music was very infectious, This prompted myself to buy the full length cd.Tracks such as ALKALINE and ELO sounded much like early JAM tracks.After hearing them live,they were much better on cd.The trio of Scarfo have a good way of telling "URBAN" style stories in songs such as "Luxury Plane Crash","Japanese Cameras" and "Prison Architect".Songs about life in a modern world with drive and vitality. Alas,i fear that PLACEBO were the stars on the night,but,SCARFO really warmed up the crowd "when all is said and done,oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
