Although often ignored by the critics because of past experience on Momus's albums of being a little too sexual and personal with his lyrics; the words and melodies of Nicholas Currie are often a joy to behold. Essentially a Pet Shop Boy who swears a lot, Momus has produced great work over the years but has never really sold records outside Japan. This latest album sees him mixing analog synth samples and harpsichords with the electro-pop sound of Kraftwerk; well, that's what the sleevenotes claim, anyway. Although an interesting idea, Momus's creative muse appears to have completely deserted him as this album sounds like a collection of poor quality novelty records with some ridiculously banal lyrics. There are only three occasions when the sound is interesting, on the second track whose plinky-plonky keyboards at least have a nagging rhythm, whilst 'Born To Be Adored' and 'What Are You Wearing' distance themself from all this analog synth tomfoolery for a few moments to convey edginess and menacing rhythms. Elsewhere it's just rather silly with the ridiculously vile 'Coming In A Girl's Mouth' actually sounding even worse than the title suggests.
