DJ Oddiofile This genre-bending awe-inspiring masterpiece is what turned me into a collector and fan of all things dots-related. Alas, it is the final album that had full participation from the violinist, Patrick Q, who sounds like an entire orchestra at times here.

The songwriting is masterful, as is the sound quality. 24 years later, I still think it is their best work. Favorite track: Hotel Noir.

RTW Go back... countless years. This is a progressive and melancholic album that was somewhat stripped down after the six-man band fell apart, to grandiose conceptual effect. "Maniac" sounds like it's trying too hard to be sort of "industrial," but the ballads are the treasures here: "Hotel Noir," "Lisa's Separation," "The More It Changes." And "The Talent Contest" is a lush song with great lyrics. Even the vegetables screamed! Favorite track: Hotel Noir.

about

1988. Half of the 6 piece Pink Dots had quit after a long tour. EK and The Silverman were living in a caravan.It was never going to be a happy album...yet it remains a persnal favourite for the 2 survivors of LPDs class of '88. This 2016 Remaster may well be the definitive version of this album.
