    Initially boring but after a few listens the vocals make you want to tear the stars down from the sky and crush them.

  1. Though Herbert has outdone himself and matches his ambitions with his achievements, the songs are unmistakably his and Siciliano's, sounding like no one else, twisting and swinging and drifting with optimum vibrancy.
  2. Warm and quirky. Pleasantly bizarre. Sophisticated and daft. Herbert at his best.

    Herbert sneakily subverts Scale's apocalyptic thematic thread into something warm and danceable. [2 Jun 2006, p.83]
