Kompleksi review in The Wire


"Because he is Finnish and associated with one of the nation's greatest record labels, hopes were pretty high for Kompleski's [sic] (I Ain't No) Lovechild/Moscow 1980 (Lal Lal Lal 7"). But it's kind of tough to get behind the hardcore electronic cheese of this single. The primitivism of the electronics is somewhat endearing on "Lovechild", but the vocals and the specific poofing electronics on "Moscow 1980" are just too close to BEF pop to raise much excitement. Maybe you just have to be there."

- Byron Coley, The Wire, August 2005, p. 62
