Customer Reviews


An excellent album!! Great follow up to Fantastic Playroom, I espically like We Want To!! Worth £7.99 with the two videos aswell!!

A Goldmine

This album is very good, alot of the tracks are excellent, the production values of the album is very much up there with the best of them! It is abit of a hidden gem we have here, and i sort of like that!

To highlight a track "Lost a girl" is a brilliant Album opener, it is very pacey with a great catchy vocal going on.

Alot of the Tracks are brilliant, very much worth buying and spreading the word!


Really love this album, such a huge huge leap forward from their first album! Every song has so much more depth and musical variety than their first album. The tunes are so catchy too, chaos swamp mix is stunning, architect of love is really soulful and the others are class too. Hopefully this album might finally break them into the proper mainstream where they deserve to be. Buy it!
