It is considered to be among the band's strongest work, displaying the moment they completed their transformation from post-punk hold-overs to dance rockers. The original Factory CD issues of the album were mastered with pre-emphasis.

The melodica-led pop song "Love Vigilantes" was the opener, nearly identical.

Love Vigilantes: The first song on the album represents the album well. Starting with a pronounced bass, harmonica and eventually a faint guitar and drum machine. In comes the vocals, frail and almost sarcastic. I Want To See My Family, My Wife And Child Waiting For Me. This song repeats, but you should really listen to the whole thing, because it's really a spectacular and the first of only two happier songs on the album. An overall nice song, complete with a speed guitar outro. The Perfect Kiss: The song that I originally hear and what got me into this album. A bass, dramatic keyboards, a drum machine and speed guitar occupy this song throughout the whole thing, and the result is pretty much the best song on the album.
