Último álbum da banda (1987), mais adulta nos grooves de dança e a atingir um cume de complexidade que quase aponta noutra direcção. Ainda os mantras vocais mas, sobretudo, um som que a tecnologia até permitiria polir mas que Hula insistiam em manter rude e quente, evocando ainda (talvez inevitavelmente) grandes espaços industriais progressivamente abandonados um pouco por toda a Inglaterra. É um disco perfeito de afirmação de personalidade e também um disco perfeitamente estranho, difícil de assimilar e, por isso, com muitos detalhes a descobrir em cada nova escuta. Seis faixas extra completam a imagem com música retirada de maxis contemporâneos gravados por esta banda dificilmente comparável a outras.

"Hula were founded in Sheffield in 1981. Three members (Mark Albrow, Alan Fish and Ron Wright) lived with Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Paul Widger (They must be Russians, Clock DVA, The Box) in a villa called Hula Kula. After trying the bass players Alan Watt and Chris Brain (Tense, NOS) Hula recorded the impressive debut album Cut From Inside with Mark Brydon (Chakk, Moloko). Ingredients like cut ups, steady rhythms, and paranoia vocals were blended together into a unique white funky sound. Murmur was the band's second album and came out on Red Rhino in 1984. This was also the time of Hula's great singles - Fever Car, Get the Habit and Walk on Stalks of Shattered Glass were all released around that time. These two long players were followed by an ambient album called Shadowland and a live double LP entitled 1000 Hours. Voice was to be the band's last album and came out on Red Rhino in 1987. It is a much bigger and cleaner production than its predecessors and was produced and engineered by the creme de la creme of its time: Daniel Miller, Robert Gordon, John Fryer, Paul Kendall and others. Two singles were lifted off the album, Cut Me Loose and Poison, both perfect examples of Electronic Industrial Pop. A year earlier, another 12" was released entitled Freeze Out, it is also included in this first time on CD re-issue. After the album,. Hula recorded one more 12" for Wax Trax and then fell silent. Let's hope for new Hula material to come out in the near future." (Label PR)
