The garish, modernist pink and yellow sleeve designed by 8VO is somewhat far removed from the pastoral images of earlier Durutti Column albums, yet fitted in nicely with acid house and the impending rave-culture being championed by the label's Hacienda nightclub. Strangely, "Obey The Time" was overlooked by the chemical generation and equally shunned by the critics. It wasn't and still isn't a particularily ground-breaking release, but stands as something of a leap forward for Reilly, who utilised a drum machine in place of Bruce Mitchell on most of the tracks. Tracks like "The Warmest Rain" and "Fridays" are sparse and minimal, whilst the opening and closing vignettes and spine-tinglingly beautiful "Home" showed a warmer, more personal side to his oeuvre. Fabulous.
