It’s been a while since I did the gloomy post-punk thing. Don’t know anything about The Bodies so I can only give you my thoughts. When I bought this I would have been hoping for a Gary Numan or Ultravox style gloomy electronic record. I didn’t get the electronics but it didn’t disappoint on the gloom front. This record builds in a relentless way that makes the ending perfect.
