VINE VOICEon 6 July 2001
Rupert Hine wouldn't win the prize for greatest vocalist, but his disks are never less than dramatic and atmospheric with high production values, imaginative and evocative use of synthesiser sampling way ahead of its time, and haunting, sometimes dreamy lyrics from Hine's long-time co-writer Jeanette-Therese Obstoj.
The mood is infectious, whichever track you listen to. Try the cheerful title track (which sounds like a steel band playing), the creepy narrative of Samsara (picture cold war eastern europe), Psych Surrender the odd tale of boredom for a patient locked in an asylum, then the theatrical I make a wish.
Guaranteed to be nothing like you've ever heard before, but surprisingly melodical with it!

Early electronica with soul, literate and intelligent. An album that was overlooked in its time but that still sounds fresh and experimental in a new century.

Got the original on vinyl and it still sounds as fresh today as it ever did. Way ahead of its time and if real talent counted for anything at all then Hine should have been a very big star. Unfortunately, he was overlooked by too many but this record should convince everyone just how good he was.

A fascinating journey through Mr Hine's mind, Immunity is full of crisp 80s goodness

I bought this on vinyl when it first came out decades ago and still listen to it many times over. It is musically strong - all the tracks are memorably listenable and enjoyable - and all have a dark edge or menace with a feeling of mental instability that creates a sense of unease to go with the strong musical structure. Excellent. A classic.
