Time Out says

A straightforward account of the rise and ultimate disillusionment of a typical teenage rave band, tightly scripted and directed. The seediness of the behind-the-scenes machinations runs through the story: they are seedy whether perpetrated by a third-rate Midlands agent or by the suave director of a London management and investment company. The film (which isn't a moment too long, a welcome rarity) doesn't say much that you don't know already; good performances, though, from Shannon, Conti, and Lake as the all-time loser vocalist.
