The sleeve notes say these are live recordings, and it's true that they sound as if half-composed and half-DJed. "Else" is the real achievement of this combination, even though it sounds like a DJ gleefully clearing a dance floor. It begins as a jerky rhythm resembling an old Hotflush release, but gets subsumed by a backwards vocal sample. After banishing every element, Michael Jackson's voice snaps into focus and carries the track to its echoey conclusion. "Goobye" is just as bent on confusing the listener: its snares say "jack" but its low-end is so distant that it's difficult to distinguish kick drum from bassline, creating more atmosphere than propulsion.
The title track, a deep roller with no sense of mischief about it, is the reward for Glance's taxing aspects. Those who see Image Man as being concerned more with soulful fuckery than moving a crowd might consult the B1 before jumping to conclusions. The EP displays a healthy skepticism of the sometimes transient pleasures to be found in repetition, but this one shows that Image Man is as susceptible to carefree grooves as the rest of us.
