"Few will need introduction to This Heat's second studio album, Deceit. As with Blue and Yellow, it stands out as a high-water mark in the extensive field of post-punk/avant- progressive/experimental rock music dating from the early '80s. It differs from the band's debut album inasmuch as the great majority of the pieces are thoroughly composed songs, but the penchant to push the boundaries of sound manipulation is still highly apparent, and at the forefront of their motivations. The lyrics are more overtly political on Deceit and, while sung by all three group members, are most disturbing when delivered by drummer Charles Hayward, in his trademark, barbaric, growling, angrily-screeching manner. This perfectly compliments the musical scenarios as they simultaneously unfold and implode upon themselves in an onslaught of tricky drum patterns, outstanding guitar work and imposing bass thuddery."
