"The second album by Mesh, ITPF, is a well-crafted blend of synthetic pop music and industrial rave. While much of the mainstream only sings about love and happinness (not necessarily a bad thing), Mesh doesn't forget the reality of life and the hardships, sadness, frustrations, and even anger that come from love and happiness. This album explores all of the above and Mark Hockings demonstrates superb lyrical skill and by so doing, he paints a vivid picture of each song. His vocabulary exceeds many of his piers and he refrains from the blasphemy and cursing that bands like NIN need in order to express their feelings.Sonically this album bests any of its previous work and its piers. "Involved" could easily be a #1 in all clubs. "Confined" and "You Didn't Want Me" are so melencholy it is almost frightening.Get this album and after your 3rd or 4th listen you'll be trying to get your hands on any Mesh material you can. Their previous album "Fragile" is also a gem- but if you want the best that Mesh has put out, you'll have to get your hands on "The Point At Which It All Falls Apart". Nevertheless, ITPF is the perfect starter for 1st time Mesh listeners."
Great release by one of Britain's foremost electronic bands.

"In this place forever is bursting with elements of strength, emotion, and truth centered around the realities of life. Mesh achieves a sound very reminescent of its early synth rock heroes, yet revives the the music with a very modern approach. Harsh beats, haunting melodies, atmospheric synths, and melodic vocals make up the post rock sound of mesh. In this place forever sparkles with gems such as "Shatters, "You didn't want me", and "I don't think they know". Mesh recieves a four star rating for their pledge to keeping the synth scene happening and fresh. Also check out Mesh's single "Trust You" for a good reminder of what making great electronic music is all about."
MESH in this place forever!

"In the last two years of the 80's I was moved by a hardly known vocal talent that of Dean Russell. As the lead singer for MOEV he made the then crossover industrial sound very emotional and aesthetic without being "overly" harsh. It was probably my last favorite 80's act. MESH not related in any way had that aesthetic for the 90's and now the new millennium and have made amazing crossover electro. This was the first album I listened to and was immediately moved by the structure of the piece (I consider each of their albums a themed piece of work). This is one intelligent and very well crafted album. Plan to be taken on an emotive and enjoyable journey. Just EXCELLENT."
