"Well, sort of, anyway. You see, there are a couple of tracks that are very... EIGHTIES. And they are, well, pretty bloody awful actually, if listened to as single tracks ("I Love You" & "No More Words"). However, as an album, listened to in its entirety, it's FANTASTIC! The over-dated songs merge in with the good ones, making an album that flows very smoothly. There are, after all, some absoloute classics here. "Lost Again" has a real emotional quality that many songs are lacking. The gravally vocals compliment the lyrics and guitars. "Crash Dance" is short and sweet, with the basic layout of a techno track. "Great Mission" and "You Gotta Say Yes..." are pretty bizarre, but that's part of Yello's charm, and it's all good fun (once you work out what the lyrics are...). "Swing" never fails to make my foot tap, and "Salut Mayomba" is a haunting latin-influenced piece of class. Of course, you can take Yello, or you can leave them, but I strongly suggest you take this album. Before "Oh Yeah" and "The Race", before they got way too commercial, before the REAL excess of the eighties, Yello were one of the best. And this album is one of the best as well."

"This is one of the oddest albums I have heard in a long time. Yello has always been an oddity. Songs like "Crash Dance", "You gotta say yes to another excess" are very odd indeed, but likable. My personal favorite on here is "I love you" just the sound & the way it's done is very interesting. I also liked "Lost again" it shows emotion & it's really great to listen to. This album does have a lot of synth in it, but it's worth listening too. I mean these are the same guys who made "Oh Yeah". It's definitely worth a listen!"
