5.0 out of 5 stars 'A New Romantic And 80's Classic' 6 April 2008
By Antony May TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
A Flock Of Seagulls self titled debut album was a release, in spite of greater commercial singles success, that they were never to top. Their story started in September 1981 with the release of first single 'Telecommunication' a catchy new romantic synth pop song. The single failed to chart and so two months later Jive records released a second single 'Modern Love Is Automatic'. While this also failed to chart, 'Automatic' certainly made a splash with new romantic fans and the band began to get talked about at least. It was with their profile on the rise that third single 'I Ran' was released. Slightly more commercial than the excellent but moody 'Automatic', 'I Ran' had a more guitar/synth riff than before and as such started to pick up radio play. Before long the band had their first hit top 40 hit. Next came the classic 'Space Age Love Song' another top 40 hit. Not unlike 'I Ran', it had both a mellow edge and more romantic lyrics to it and seemed to soar/float across the airwaves. Rather like the singles from it, this album never made a big dent on the national charts (as far as height of chart position goes) but it did 'hang around' in the middle reaches of the chart for 30 odd weeks and set the foundations for the bands later success with single 'Wishing (I Had A Photograph Of You)' and album 'Listen'. 'A Flock Of Seagulls' features all of the previously mentioned songs. 'Messages' could have been another single, while 'You Can Run', 'Standing In A Doorway' and the powerful instrumental 'D.N.A' will all delight fans. For lovers of the new romantic movement/genre this album really is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars great first album includes the huge hit "I ran" 17 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great debut album, as one of the leaders of the new romantic genre.
I ran is the obvious star but there are many others including the slightly-manic "standing in the doorway".
This release also includes "Tokyo" which was omitted from the original Jive release.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Romantic D.N.A. 23 Oct 2013
By Mr. 880
Format:Audio CD
In 1982 Smash Hits described Space Age Love Song, the new single by up-and-coming Liverpool band, A Flock of Seagulls as being like "a Glenn Hoddle through pass, simple but brilliant". Having already released Telecommunication to not much fanfare, SALS suddenly found itself touted on Radio 1 and your reviewer, a big admirer of Hoddle's silky skills, went out the next day and bought the début album like a shot to see what all the fuss was about. Months later, my mates and I found ourselves backstage with the band - I know, you couldn't make it up! - and Mike Score told us that he really had seen UFOs, but he'd rather not talk about it.

For a young boy growing up in a provincial town, this was all terribly exciting and made those of us who flocked - I'm sorry I know, it had to be done - to the band seem like we'd stepped off the tour bus marked planet pop and were as 'in the know' as Peter Martin, David Hepworth and all the other great writing stalwarts of the early Smash Hits bandwagon.

It didn't last of course and AFOS's star waned as their line-up broke apart after the third record. But my, what a début they concocted made all the more exotic for those of us who latched on to them early and could quote that immortal line, "well, they're massive in the States right now!" And they were. Rolling Stone loved them, the fans couldn't get enough and listening to the staccato riffs of I Ran, Messages, and Telecommunication brings it all flooding back. But there is still little from the time to match the swirling synth opening and wailing guitars - the first album put driving guitars and Yamaha DX7s together and made it potent like few others could do initially!

...and we just got MTV in my home, I think it was May. I was immediately transfixed by the new music video channel. Prior to my budding interest in New Wave music, which started a couple years before, I spent the 1970's listening to Kiss. And considering the lyrical content of just about every Kiss song, I can see why it appealed to me as a pre-teen. It's beyond juvenile. But now it was time to grow up and listen to songs about spaceships and aliens, with bands looking the part. Enter A Flock Of Seagulls. From the first time I saw the video for 'I Ran', I was hooked. The song was (and still is) awesome, the band looked odd and cool, and I had to have the LP. So as I often did at that age, I cleaned the house to earn the $6.99 to buy the album from my local record store. Thankfully, they had one misplaced copy, and I got it!

It turned out to be a great year for music, and I'm not just talking singles. The bulk of most New Wave LP's released in the early 80's were often very good, and this album was a prime example. I remember the first time I heard the instantly memorable and catchy 'Telecommunication', I had to play it again. The sound that stood out most to me on the album was Paul Reynolds' very distinctive guitar. His classic guitar riffs rule energetic timepieces like 'You Can Run' and 'Modern Love is Automatic'. I couldn't get enough of this band at the time, and even remember the world premiere of their new video, 'Space Age Love Song'. The band were hot at the time, but it was a shame to have them viewed as a joke in the musically miserable 90's. Thankfully, appreciation for the band as true individuals has remained, and even increased over time.
