A strange album that forces its way in and out of pleasure for the listener.

Forever thankful for this album because it got me into electronic music. Personally to me it is one of those moments where you are like "Wow I didn't know music can sound like this". Objectively speaking, this album does have flaws and has some filler tracks mostly because CC just wanted to put out as much material as possible on their first big release. Still contains many classics and I always find myself going back to it.

Great bit of noise.
Best songs - Alice Practice and Black Panther (sounds like pokemon on acid)

It's not that bad. I managed to find some good tracks in here, like Magic Spells, Reckless, and the closer Tell Me What to Swallow. It's a shame that there weren't more songs like that closer because eventually a lot of those bleeps and bloops kind of blur together to where it's hard to separate one track from another with the exception of the songs that I listed.

I love this album. It is a great pick me up any time of day for any activity. Especially love it driving, loud with the windows down

This group confuses me. It's like, why would you go out of your way to sound like Eurotrash? You're Canadian, you've got plenty of stereotypes of your own, quit hogging them all!
