Archival press quote: "No one else currently turning out commercial music has anywhere near Chris and Coseyʼs intuitive grasp of the stimulating possibilities of electronic rhythm. Trance is just what it claims to be: a mesmerising chance to reassess the suggestive potential of sound, which in turn, attempts to intoxicate the listener into a reinvestigation of surrounding environments.” Steve Sutherland - Melody Maker 1982
