The second full-length Television Personalities release is darker and more psychedelic than their classic debut.

The 1982 "Mummy You're Not Watching Me" covers Treacy's increasingly self-effacing lyrics in a wash of keyboards and phased guitars.

Including the wistful "Magnificent Dreams", the bewitching "If I Could Write Poetry" and the lengthy "David Hockney's Diaries", an acid rock drone that introduces an entirely different texture into the band's sound.

"there are still some absolute gems, tough little diamonds lurking undiscovered, just waiting to be polished and made into sparkling hit singles." - Sounds
