Emerging from the smoky remains of the New Wave/electroclash burnout, Nid and Sancy‘s Talk to the Machine is an evil kitten stripped of glitz. Sancy demonstrates a hot vocal range throughout the album-the standout track "No Fuck All" sees her giving her best Siouxsie siren wail one moment, then jabbering with Peaches‘ fuck-off-and-dance resolve the next. Obvious comparisons to female vocalists aside, the record‘s industrial-dance formula succeeds with meticulously dark production and metallic sex appeal. While it shouldn‘t seem entirely new to anyone who remembers Nitzer Ebb, Talk to the Machine at least gives compelling reason to revisit the sound.
