Despite Revell's interesting (if not entirely for ambition's sake) attempt to push SPK towards the consumer-friendly, funkier circles (already with "Machine Age Voodoo"), the main problem with "Gold & Poison" is in its very audible stylistic inconsistency - stripped down beats and samples assembled in the part featuring vocals should work ("Breathless" remains a guilty pleasure, astrange ebm-ish pop mutant of Manufacture and Kylie) - instead, however, these beats and samples are displayed in their most clichéd way here and couldn't be more at odds with the instrumentals taken over from the conceptually stronger "Zamia Lehmanni". Even worse, these "Zamia Lehmanni" instrumentals are degraded down to mere fillers on "Gold & Poison", while with the vocally arranged songs, SPK only tap in the dark without prospering from it.Revell's "germanik" vocal attempts on "Sheer Naked Aggression" sound too weak - and to an extent laughable, while female vocals do save some of the picture, but the shallowness infesting these songs is too hard to ignore. As many tend to bark at this strange episode of SPK's, familiar with the group's "medical history", the radical sound shift from, say - "Leichenschrei" to this, is not the reason to blame them. Their change of heart to become a more pop-oriented unit after once-aurally threatening guerilla unit was a justified step "further", but it is their desperate attempt to remain "subversive" in the wake of pop that fails at large, considering that most of the pop music industry's bigger fish of the time started exploiting the very same sample-heavy beast just the same.
The dialogue with the woman asking "Have you ever heard him play the piano?" on the track Breathless is from the 1946 film "The Beast with Five Fingers" starring Peter Lorre.
