Severed Heads were an experimental Australian outfit who can justifiably claim to be an influential factor on the more danceable side of electronic music. Key member Tom Ellard enlisted the help of producer Robert Racic to work on the two singles ('All Saints Day' and 'Greater Reward') lifted from this 1989 album. Racic's work in Chicago and New York included a project with renowned producer Arthur Baker and this shows as many parallels can be drawn between those singles and New Order's 'Technique' album released around the same time. Fine though they are, the album itself is certainly not made up of makeweights, featuring many excellent tracks dripping with invention and hooks-a-plenty. There's the sped-up 'Midget Sings', whereas the title track and 'Big Car' are blessed with an eerily melodic charm. Bonus track 'Bombs Fell' even features an Orbital-type tune. Strangely for a record of this type, the songs have a long-term quality to them making this easily one of the best electronica/dance albums of the 80s.
