"In the "alternative" music genre, Mark Stewart may be the most important artist no one's ever heard of. Stewart -- and this brilliant, abrasive, adventurous album in particular -- is a direct influence on such industrial bands as Nine Inch Nails as well as on the entire Trip Hop scene, especially the "Bristol sound" of bands like Massive Attack and Portishead. (Stewart himself is from Bristol.) You'd think that by today's standards, Stewart's mid-80s work ("Veneer," his 2nd album, was released in 1985) would sound tame. But it doesn't. This album is still a revelation. Incredible, confrontational, unforgettable."

"In so many ways this was the consummate achievement of Adrian Sherwood's work in the 80s. Presaging so much trip-hop and deep dub mixes of the 90s, it is unquestionably one of the most joyously frightening records you will ever hear. Stewart is as challenging as the music and NIN owes a massive debt of thanks to both him and Sherwood for this incredibly important work. It just does not get any better."
