"Ecstasy Of St. Theresa are the only Czech group, that made it into the UK charts and recorded a session with John Peel. They have now confirmed their position at the forefront of the Czech independent music scene with this, their new album: a downbeat hybrid of Moloko and experimental beats. Fusing the sound of traditional instruments with electronic background noise the record proves that delicate, emotional music can also be audacious and non-traditional at the same time. Its musical content reflects what's happening in the world of modern experimentation. For example, no drums are used in the song 'I'm (Not Really) Optimistic'. The rhythm (or vocal percussion) is provided in an inimitable way by guest rapper Sifon, (the central figure of Czech hip hop legends WWW). A dialogue ensues between a clarinet and the voice of Kate on 'Then I'd Have Less Time For Myself'. On the other hand, Happy R offers a mixture of weird cosmic soul with crackling sounds."
