Notes & Reviews:

"The constant shifting sense of where 1 is a feature Alter Ego's rhythmic assertiveness keenly highlights. Their default instrumentation of flute, clarinet, keyboards, electric guitar, mallet percussion, violin and cello adds a timbral flavour distinct from the trademark electric organ tone of the original." -All Music
