Material: Secret Life (Jungle)

Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 23 August 1986

STRANGE TIMING for this double album retrospective, considering how totally the alternative scene has renounced the ambitions of 1979-82, all the rhetoric about Eurofunkactivism, Sex, Sweat and Blood etc in favour of Sixties jinglejangle, folk, country.

Total word count of piece: 190
