"Absolutlly nothing can match this unearthed piece of brilliant songwrting and guitar work from the Lotus Eaters, even though "It Hurts" is not in this album, I still consider this album a very magnificent treasure from one of the best groups during of 80's, it would be absolutlly foolish for me not to give this album a 5 star rating. I know a lot of groups from the 80's like Catus World News, The Farmers Boys, Howard Devoto, The Colour Fields and Positive Noise whose albums are just waiting to be re-discover, it would be a big disappointment from the New Wave Yuppies if nobody dares to re-issue them like what you have done for the Lotus Eaters. I hope this vision and dream comes to reality!"
Unique and Thoroughly Enjoyable

"Although this isn't the original (aka "real") album "No Sense of Sin," the John Peel Radio 1 Sessions are equally great--fantastic, in fact. The amazing thing is some of the tracks were done when the group was only three weeks old, and the sound is almost exact to their one major release. Tracks are different enough to not duplicate the Japanese import of "No Sense of Sin" and the mastering is crisp n' tasty."
