  • Summary: This second album for the Manchester (by way of Germay) electronica/Krautrock duo features guest vocals from Brian Molko (Placebo).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. Though the Manchester duo might not be completely on par with the bands they emulate, they more than earn an A for effort while crafting some wonderful melodies along the way.
  2. A hint of what Pet Shop Boys would sound like with guitars. [Apr 2003, p.72]
  3. These Brits are sort of a New Order for the twenty-first century - fitter, happier, more productive.
  4. A shimmering snowflake of a record.
  5. Flamboyance and melancholy in equal measure, then, but 'White Noise' mainly leaves you cold.
  6. Draws heavily on Depeche Mode and the Pet Shop Boys.... It would take a dazzling collection to sound anything other than a poor relation to such synth titans, and this plainly isn't it. [July 2002, p.108]
  7. 30
    Mancunian hipsters will shudder in disbelief. [July 2002, p.101]
