Mantronix: Mantronix: The Album (10)

Paul Mathur, Melody Maker, 22 March 1986

NOISE NEVER never never annoys you know. Mantronix go for the paintstripper approach, burning away electro's lesser indulgences and leaving hard core hip hop of the highest order. Tunes are incidental rather than earnestly necessary, Mantronik preferring to assault with one note LOUD emulated snipes around M.C. Tee's vocal propaganda.
