“This 1986 album represents a bit of a recovery from his previous album (1983's Diamond Jack and the Queen of Pain). Kevin was back in the driver's seat, and the album is stronger than that predecessor.
The album still sits squarely in the 1980s, and is a product of a more synthesized time. Much of the album is dominated by programmed keyboards, keyboard bass, and drums, but it isn't severe. The sound still comes across as much stronger than say The Unfairground.”

Stronger than "Unfairground"? That's ridiculous..."Unfairground" was a grand, orchestral masterpiece offset by Ayers's casual brilliance. This is glitchy '80s nonsense.
