AllMusic Review by Jim Harper
After scoring big time with Floodland, Sisters of Mercy frontman Andrew Eldritch changed direction once again, heading this time for a guitar-based techno-rock feel. The title track became a club hit, where the driving tempo and distorted guitars provided a perfect dancefloor atmosphere. On "Doctor Jeep" and "Detonation Boulevard," the lack of variation becomes quickly annoying, however, and "Something Fast" fails entirely in its efforts to be introspective and wistful. The Jim Steinman-produced "More" and the clever "I Was Wrong" are the album's highlights, but it's a shame the rest of the album is so patchy.
