Review by Flood Magazine [LINK]:

"Although Excess is concerned with, well, excess, its message is telegraphed with an ironically conservative palette. It's an exercise in defiance, conservation, and a feat of minimalist-cum-maximalist songwriting. The band reshapes the aloof robotics of Kraftwerk and the auditory illusions of Melody's Echo Chamber into their own unique voice, ending up with little more than the aforementioned Moog, an unrelenting drum beat, and a lolloping Peter Hook bassline. It's all they need to transmit their manifesto. The result sounds robust and modern in the way that '80s sci-fi flicks viewed the future—coltish, sleek, and with the garish silver hue mirrored on the album cover."
