The most abstract of the three Cabaret Voltaire albums released by Plastex/Instinct, The Conversation has the occasional flair of a film soundtrack, especially considering its two-hour sprawl across a double-disc set (the second of which features just one hour-long track). Track Listing - Disc 1. Sample.

Studio album by Cabaret Voltaire. The Conversation appears in the following lists: Music Genre: Pop/Rock. Music Genre: Avant-Garde.

Cabaret Voltaire are an English music group formed in Sheffield in 1973 and initially composed of Stephen Mallinder, Richard H. Kirk, and Chris Watson. The group was named after the Cabaret Voltaire, the Zürich nightclub that served as a centre for the early Dada movement.

Mix-Up is the debut studio album by English band Cabaret Voltaire. It was released on 23 October 1979, through record label Rough Trade. The album contains a cover of The Seeds' song "No Escape". Writing in Smash Hits in 1979, Red Starr said the album was an "intriguing but only occasionally attractive array of verbal and musical images". Starr went on to say that it sounded like "pointless backroom self indulgence".

From CD insert: "Composed programmed arranged and sonically orchestrated by rhkirk > intone/productions. //Spoken words montage on project80 courtesy of intone productions except forbidden planet dialogue"
This note enforces the common opinion among fans, that Stephen Mallinder's contribution to this album was very little, not to say insignificant.

Thi is an amazing record, it's worth a repress. Waiting for it!

This one's due for a vinyl repress methinks. R&S get on it!

The last 3 Cabs albums, this one included, are credited to Kirk/Mallinder but have no vocals and sound suspiciously similar to Richard H.Kirk's solo albums of the same era so I'm not sure what Mal's input was or if it was just a contractural thing (in the same way that 'Give Peace a Chance' is credited to Lennon/McCartney). Nevertheless this is an excellent record and seems a logical point for the Cabs to finish - making an elegant interpretation of the Techno music they helped inspire. The real high point here is the epic 53 min Project 80 which recalls 'Three Mantras' and the beats n' tape-loops style of their earliest material but also gives Aphex Twin and Autechre a run for their money.

The Cabs' last recording as a group to date. This 2-CD set is a further exercise from where the group left off with 'International Language' and 'Plasticity'. The overall sound is much more ambient and trance-y than the previous 2 releases while still retaining the techno sheen. The 50 minute plus 'Project 80' track on disc 2 is sheer brilliance - the longest track these guys have put on to disc during their career (and if you like 50-minute long compositions of that nature). It's THE definite standout on the release. Worth acquiring just for the generous sampling from the 'Altered States' flick. The 10-minute 'Harmonic Parallel' on the first disc is also worth a listen. For fans of the group and for those who are into the mid-90s Ambient scene, this is an important audio document.
