"If Anywhere Was Here He Would Know Where We Are" is a tense work, with a rolling rhythm that might make one think of jungle, if jungle were a product of the '80s cold wave. The drum hits and synth tones seem almost punitive, designed to admonish rather than seduce - and yet seduce they do. On the flip, Regis reinvents "This Foundry." It's a tough but sensitive version, true to the original's overriding atmosphere of decay and disquiet, but also tapping into its romantic undercurrents.
