This album is good, damn good. TSU know how to write a tune and whilst it is more electro pop sounding than their other records it's not so far removed that their identity has been lost and they have not tried to be too clever for their own good.

Sunshine indeed! Sunshine and sparkles and rainbows and a whole lot more!
The Sunshine Underground's synth-pop reinvention suits them very well indeed.
These ten tunes, whilst clearly bursting with the band's deep love of the
music of the eighties, have a freshness and directness which leaps out of the
speakers and drags you along on a wave of almost unhealthily addictive energy.

The beats are well-nigh irresistible. From the first four-square driving bars of the
splendid opening number 'Start' (just loving those deadpan vocals!); though the
deliciously dark-hued nocturnal clicketty-clack of 'Nightlife' and wonderfully tender
naive melodic and lyrical sentiments of 'Turn It On' to the luminous and hauntingly
subdued beauty of concluding track 'Here Comes The Storm', this hugely talented
ensemble seem perfectly at home in the new sound world they have created together.

I was more than happy to take the journey with them. Great work gentlemen!

Highly Recommended.

This record is a massive change in direction for TSU but it has certainly paid off! I cannot stop listening to this album at the moment and had me jumping around as soon as I hit "Play". Some of the songs may take a little while to grow on you but this is a great electro-pop record. There is an interesting use of synths, drum machines and samples throughout and Craig's vocals are as powerful and distinctive as ever. There is a very 80's feel to some of the tracks, you can hear influences from the likes of Depeche Mode, Human League, The Rapture, etc. Every song on here is brilliant and is well worth purchasing by any die-hard TSU fan or newcomer!

TSU have always had a dance influence on previous albums but this self-titled third release takes that sound into a new measured but exciting electronic territory. From opener 'Start' to infectious and funky 'Finally We Arrive' and steppy 'It's Only You'. All 10 tracks on this album reveal a depth of sound conceived by a band more mature and considered in their approach to song writing. Plenty of ammunition to be found here for their excellent and explosive live shows.
