|SUNSET NOW from NME 1st SEPT 1984
It is difficult to take an active dislike to HEAVEN 17-men of stout hearts and sound mind one and all-but it is even harder to find anything other than flat, flawless worthinness in their music. I'd love SUNSET NOW if I could, but it tells me nothing about the frenzy of political struggle or even how I feel about my all-time favourite dancer. It is merely another record, another numb artefact. I guess the fairlight is just not the instrument from which dreams are made.

SUNSET NOW from SOUNDS 25th AUGUST 1984
Hardly a great achievement from the creators of 'FASCIST GROOVE THANG' but as pop fare it's strong enough. I know this is going to really irritate after about two weeks. Oh, what could have been.

SUNSET NOW from No1 25th AUGUST 1984
More happy returns. A year on, Heaven 17 seem to have refined the mannered
funk of 'Crushed By The Wheels'.
