While occasionally vocally limited, the introspective nature of soul mining compels it to success.

Very good record. Just a little behind, Infected, in my opinion, but still a wholly unique album. Good.

Such an underrated album. I can't believe it's ranked number 18. One of the best albums from the new wave/post punk era. The music is dark, but beautifuly arranged and interesting. Please give it a try.
