"Man, this album has some bad reviews.Ok, this album would have been much more highly acclaimed if it had come out in 1983, instead of 1989, but i still really like it. This album IS 80'S SYNTH POP! It is not the same techno stuff that Underworld released in the 1990's. These guys have been around for a long time. Back in 1984 (or maybe 83) they Karl Hyde and Rick Smith were in a band called Freur. They made cheesy 80's music. Maybe you might remember a song called "Doot Doot". That's them! Or "Hey Ho Away We Go" or "Devil in Darkness". This 80's music continues with Underworld's first 2 albums, Underneath the Radar and Change the Weather.This album is good though. I like it better than Underneath the Radar (which often gets much better reviews), and would highly recommend it to anyone that's a fan of 80's pop music."
Underworld doesn't even like this album

"If you love that unique techno sound that Underworld is known for, be forwarned- THIS ALBUM DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY OF IT! I'd only recommend this album to those who are really into 80's synth pop, and even then, not so much. This album was produced before Darren Emerson was added to the group. I even read in a magazine article that Darren hasn't even listen to any songs in their entirety because he thought it was so lame."
Do you like synth pop??????

"I know it seems like a good idea to buy this album because it's a rare, early Underworld, right??? Believe me, it's not a very good idea. This isn't techno, it's weird, silly, laughable synth pop directly from the closing credits of a back to the future movie. Believe me, i love Underworld, but this is not Underworld, at least not the Underworld that anyone likes. Karl Hyde dubbed the first version of Underworld "Mach One". Believe me, theres a reason that they weren't popular.."
