  • Summary: The Sheffield, England husband and wife electronica duo of Maurice Fulton and Mutsumi Kanamori attack various aspects of pop culture on this second funny, angry and strange release, which features song titles such as "Paris Hilton" and "Stop Bothering Michael Jackson."

    Lewd and wonderful. [Apr 2005, p.103]
  2. Out of Breach is less suited for a fucked-up dance party than just for being fucked up.
  3. Out of Breach isn't much different from 2003's Afro Finger and Gel, flitting between left-field house that is remotely danceable and bracingly atonal sheets of noise, often within the span of one track.

    Definitely not as funny or crazy as they think they are, but problably more than they need to be. [Apr 2005, p.108]

    A fashionably unruly racket. [Mar 2005, p.100]
  6. Much of this dreary lyricism will be seen as English-as-a-second-language charm by so many -- and the album's lyric sheets, which put forth all the spelling-mistake-riddled broken English with pride, seem to be of the same belief. But loving that about this disc is like so much faint praise at best, and a pernicious kind of cultural condescension at worst.
  7. A nasty, dense and confrontational mess.

    Simultaneously unlistenable and danceable, this record is a perfection of anti-social brilliance.

    This is an ego trip by a connected couple indulging their egos and demanding we all call it art. Their is nothing endearing about this album This is an ego trip by a connected couple indulging their egos and demanding we all call it art. Their is nothing endearing about this album except in listening to the most ill-conceived attempt at 'avant garde' since John and Yoko stayed in bed. Expand
