I have listened to all studio albums of China Crisis dating back in the 80's. That was the time when other New Wave bands were dominating the air waves such as Seona Dancing, Flock Of Seagulls, PM, Johnny Hates Jazz, Two Minds Crack, Vitamin Z, Wire Train, Lotus Eaters, Fra Lippo Lippi and so many others. China Crisis delivers clean & crisp musical style with rich & meaningful lyrics line by line.
I was not convinced to own one of their early CD's though they are a 7-out-of-10 pick in my collections until this album came out. This is China Crisis first ever live album (and only live album officially!) ever released by the group.... and the best ever! Trust me on this if you've got the taste. You'll get your money's worth!
