I'm surprised there's no other reviews of this great record, so I shall do my best to do it justice.

Musically this sits nicely amongst the funky early works of A Certain Ratio and to a degree, Gang Of Four. Right from the first track you get the feeling that this isn't a straight forward listening experience, intense arrangements sit on top of pumelling rhythms that carry the listener through the work.

There's a good line in political lyric here, but in a way, the vocals become part of the overall funkiness of this band. Having seen them live, I can say that they transmit their energies much better on stage than on the record, however, don't let that put you off.

This is a wonderful CD, in spite of the extended nature of the songs, not a second is wasted in excess musicianship. It's funky, danceable and yet thought provoking stuff.

Spiritual sons of A Certain Ratio? Yes, but certainly not in a derisory way.

A very good mix of progresive dancy rock looking back to the best of Talking heads, slits, Eno, etc
Fantastic

2. Dear can (Maurice Fulton vocal mix)
3, When the going gets tough, the tough get karazee (serious bonus beats mix)
4. Pardon my freedom (Maurice Fulton instrumental mix)

The album itself is amazing, funk, techno elements all blended together. It is !!!'s best album in my opinion.
But this & The Rapture's album: "Echoes" an album that flits between indie, public image limited & funk all on one album.

Lie back & enjoy, OR turn up loud & dance (maybe have a house party!)
