Mick Karn: Dreams Of Reason Produce Monsters (Virgin)

Len Brown, New Musical Express, 21 February 1987

MICK'S HIT upon hard times since the fall of Japan and his forgotten Titles. Perhaps the demise of the miscellaneous/multi-instrumentalist category in the Readers' Poll has reduced his profile; perhaps the news that he's been working with Midge Ure and Pete Murphy has bruised him in the credibility stakes. Whatever the reasons I can't see Dreams Of Reason… reversing the trend.
