ESSENTIAL CLASSIC. On their second album, the Au Pairs were very much in tune with the growth pangs of the punk/new wave scene as a whole in the early 1980s. Stripping their music to a funkier, more rhythmic essence, and shifting the focus of their lyrics to the personal rather than the political. Musically more interesting. The addition of horns and imaginative synthesizers allowed for more satisfying sonic diversity. The words were still confrontational, but more obscure in their intent.
