Reviews & Opinions

PETE PICTON, THE HIT REVIEW, 1985: Their reckless image has always got in the way of their talent as songwriters - the album Strawberries for instance. Now they walk the charts as ghosts of punk's past. This isn't as strong as 'Grimly Fienfish' but the gothic wall of sound might just squeeze it into the lower 20s.

Additional Notes

'Is It A Dream' is a remixed version of the song from Phantasmagoria.
