GT original NME review

Hi

Does anyone have scans or a link (I've searched online but cant find one) for the original NME review of GT?

There are some great quotes in there, especially the one towards the end which goes along the lines of "those who fly to close to the sun often get their wings burnt but the manics are not afraid to soar" or words to that effect

I think this is a reprint of the original review from February 1992, I scanned it from the NME Originals magazine in 2002.

Ah I bloody love that little magazine, probably the best thing NME have ever done. I'd love to see more of that Cambridge ball thing that they were at, looked great.

Ah it's NME, you remember the Forever Delayed review? Reviewed everything except the songs.

This be the same Barbara Ellen who went to Thailand with the band. I doubt she would write such a positively hyperbolic review today...
