    Starting off with a sample from Meat Beat Manifesto's PRIME AUDIO SOUP, these founding members of British bands The Smiths and New Order (Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner, respectively) churn out soothing pop melodies. They come from two different styles of music: Sumner is more dance-based, and Marr more into alternative rock, but both made music that was emotional.
    Produced by Arthur Baker in a matter of weeks, this album sounds raw, indicating that the band have been freed from the burden of expectation that surrounded previous Electronic releases. "Make It Happen," filled with yearning and confusion, sets the somber mood for this album. "Vivid," the first single, sports a harmonica throughout. The surprise on this is the Steve Winwood-penned "Can't Find My Way Home," which features a little of the Moog keyboard stylings from the original. The title track is reminiscent of Electronica's first release, with breakbeat-style drums and keyboard orchestrations.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (11/00, p.105) - 4 out of 5 - "...Noise and nuance, fuzz and fun, melodies and murkiness..."
    CMJ (9/11/00, p.24) - "...An album that's as engaging...as anything New Order did in its heyday."
