Comments:

Dymaxion Vehicle makes edgy and generally very catchy electronica on this album. Opener "Something Wicked" seems designed for dancefloors, all hard beats and a strong lead vocal. "Deep Red Mahogany" is a dreamy song that recalls what Curve was up to in the early nineties, all tough shimmery veneer and icy vocals. The cover of "West End Girls" is original enough to warrant attention, yet retains the song's charming nature well enough. It's a fine album. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)

Comments:

Remixes of the Design songs done inventively and with a cool Depeche Mode cover to boot. Well worth a look if you liked Design. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
