Richard Fearless re-incarnation from trip hopper extraordinaire to dark disco don has been one of the most remarkable reincarnations in electronic music. This phoenix-like transformation continues on Consequences of Love. The track has a lo-fi feel and its scuffled pulsing groove sounds like it was inspired in part by Throbbing Gristle's "Hot On The Heels of Love". In a neat twist Drone has commissioned former TG members Chris & Cosey to reshape "Love". The female vocal that bubbled beneath the surface on the original comes to the surface and unravels over a shiny synth and streamlined pop pulses. In the pair's hands "Love" becomes bright and curiously uplifting and euphoric.
