"This is the best album ever made.  Explosive, colourful post-punk with fairground tunes and atmospheric glam.  Howard Devoto's avant-garde lyrics are far superior to Morrissey's..."

"Deep layered soundscapes with actual lovely pop tunes.  The music sounds like the cover looks!  Your head will explode listening to this."

"AAARGH!!! I knew this would be hard to find, but find it!  They were Leigh Bowery's band.  Especially good to get drunk to! Terrifying perv-carnival disco madness and you can swear along to it!"

"What is wrong with these record companies deleting everything but Minogue & Williams?! This is a madcap classic.  The Coral ripped them off but Gorky's went further!  Best consumed at Aberystwyth."

"This is brill!  There are no rubbish songs on this album! There is a lovely J G Ballard thing going on too plus some very scary stuff - Insecticide is about a malevolent fly with designs on your wife!"
Black Celebration

"Ah! The masters!  You can't avoid buying all their albums, and then pretend you're walking around Berlin in the mid 80s with Blixa Bargeld"
Ex.El

"I don't know much about dance music but this is fantastic.  There are almost jazz style riffs which shift all the way through a "song" and you never hear the same bleeps twice!!!"

"This is the Cocteau Twins' most gorgeous "album" - I can't describe it but best listened to - a bit melancholy, a bit drunk and before sleep! (or in a nice harbour somewhere at night!)"
So Red The Rose

"Yes, they were Duran Duran and don't watch the video, but this is classy and sumptuous & you may want to gel your hair while listening."
Avalon

"Ahhh and talking of class....Warm and relaxing music.  Listen to this in a dinner jacket after the party somewhere nice!  Of all the Roxy LPs this is the most complete."
Spleen And Ideal

"No 11 - just in case you actually want to enter that other world; this is the vast sounding album that'll take you there!  Sounds like it was recorded in Ancient Greece..."
