Adult's follow-up to Resuscitation offers more of the same, which is by no means a bad thing! Minimal and broken tones and bass while Nicola Kuperus almost talks her way through the album. A perfect album for the modern electro music scene!
Electro albums are often accused of lacking any 'humanity' and warmth and Anxiety Always refuses to care. You might not feel like you've gone on an audio journey by the end of the album but the subtle changes from song to song will have even the most hardened of listeners tapping their feet, nodding their head or skipping down the street (maybe not the last one). A perfect album to listen to in order to feel superior to everyone, which I think is a great reason to buy it! I guess I'll give a few stand out songs from the album so I'll plump for the wonderfully titled "Glue Your Eyelids Together" (also the subject for the great inlay photograph), the frantic "Turn Your Back" and also "Nervous (Wreck)". Most albums tend to start to fade towards the end, but Anxiety Always keeps the style and quality right up until the very last melodic 'blung' of the album

I've been pondering on whether to buy an album my 'Adult', for a while now. My reservations lying with the fact that I had never actually heard any of their music, only a small sample in another song. I decided to purchase 'anxiety always' and I have to say its one of the best modern albums I have heard in a long time.
The second the CD starts you are pounded by electronic bass line, it has the ability to get under your skin and really move and jerk you. The vocals are immediate and haunting, the style is electronic and mono tone, a style I have to confess I have always been fond of, but they have perfected it and made it their own.
I highly recommend this album; I think it is a real achievement for the artiste, although I have to say it isn’t revolutionary in any way for what it is its good.
It’s an immediate and energizing CD, and a vital piece at that for any fan of electronic music.

I took a gamble with this album, but it turned out to be lame.
Unremarkable 'melodies' are dragged down to tortuous levels by the singer's irritating wailing. Hmmm, I shouldn't be too harsh, they're trying to make an honest living after all. An 'angry' female lead can be wonderful, but if you think you'll uncover a gem like Propaganda, or Xmal Deutschland, you'll be disappointed.
In my opinion if you risk buying this album on the blind you're gambling on a 100-1 outsider.

HASH(0x8eeb22a0) out of 5 stars Automatic classic!! 8 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All of the Adult. naysayers appear to be ravers who don't know that electronic music doesn't have to be ibiza friendly. Adult. has embraced electronics as a means of music expression, but do not limit themselves to categorization. If you are expecting a Felix sound or (sigh)-Tiga, then you've come to the wrong place. This is pure electronic post-punk existing in our present time. Adult. is the only band thrown into the hodgepodge that is "electroclash" that knows how to rock with their synths. If the clubbers can't handle it, then they can go listen to their Ladytron CDs.

Adult are gaining speed in Houston, selling rather quickly. Great retro-electro female vocals with a couple of instrumentals. Buy this CD. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8e8ccd08) out of 5 stars Has some good songs, but overall it's uneven and merely "ok" - for electronica fans only 8 Jan. 2006
By C. Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Adult's "Anxiety Always" has promise, but it just doesn't deliver. They try to be as creative as possible, but what they do is create unlistenable and unsatisfying songs. Not to mention that whoever the female vocalist is needs to work on her style (it's not horrible, but it's just not that good). The electronic style is essentially just very fuzzy guitars with some blips, bloops and samples thrown in every now and then. Overall it feels uninspired and not very interesting. The lyrics are especially pretty dull. Only electronica fans would like this, but even they would be disappointed. It's not the most horrible thing I've ever heard, though; it's just "ok". Not recommended.

Highlights include:
"Shake Your Head"
"Glue Your Eyelids Together"
"Blank Eyed, Nose Bleed"
"Nothing Of The Kind"
"Nervous (Wreck)" (parts of it)
"Kick In The Shin"

HASH(0x8d6ce714) out of 5 stars Definitley a departure, but not a total failure 21 Jan. 2004
By R. dekoch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As the Electro movement gained popularity towards the end of 2002, Adult. got tired of the electro scene and wanted to head into harder post-punk territory. While Anxiety Always isn't bad, it doesn't have the hooks and grooves of Resuscitation. The Cold Call sounds like an unusally listener friendly Throbbing Gristle cut, while Glue Your Eyelids Together could be some 25 year old post-punk anthem. The vocals are highly affected and delivered in a serious-as-a-heart-attack style which is often unintentionally amusing. All in all it's not bad, but it's not a non-stop hard electro dance party.

I don't know how I missed out on this one when it was originally released and the naysayers had me convinced this was crap. Well I for one love it!

If Chris & Cosey and add(n)to x had a bratty punk rock child who was into Siouxsie & the Banshees Adult. would be it.

They tap into the zeitgeist of late 70s punk and early 80s electropop and expertly fuse the two together. The vocals are definitely an acquired taste but for me they mirror and compliment the cold emotionless music. She sounds likes an even more bored Miss Kittin, if that's possible.

Definitely beginning to end fave CD for me. I love every track!
