This album is the most exciting thing I have heard in very many years, in fact the last album that gave me this sort of buzz was 17 years ago, that being "Blue bell knoll" by the cocteau twins.
I bought the single " Living by numbers" at the time but I was not even aware that thay had an ablum, never mind three, such is the way the music bizz ignore real talent in favour of shallow pap, the junk food of the music world.
I have listened to it repeatedly for days and it is quite superb.
Tony Mansfield is a VERY talented man, such originality and melodic creations with more hooks that a row of fishermen.I cant wait for " from a-b " to arrive from Amazon.
This album cuts through the mire of talentless, derived, plagurised, dross, that the music industry excretes daily. How often the human trait of real talent usually resulting in modesty is SO TRUE.
Tony Mansfield was a unpreposing figure on stage, no big ego image, and he has talent in skip loads, on the other hand the """"""performers""""" that soil the airwaves today have ego's that fill skips and talent that would be seriously dwarfed by an atom.
If you like synth and sweeping melodies, genuinely "new music" that gives a superb canvas for your own imagination and leaves you with respect for the artist this album is a MUST HAVE.

Ah, New Musik. Difficult to know how they avoided being huge. In at the right time, right tunes, had the right instruments. Perhaps it was because they weren't pretty boys and didn't write about pretty boy subjects.
Tony Mansfield takes on the fairly major subjects or religion, world peace and the threat of destruction in this second album (Churches, Areas, While you Wait). It's got great tunes and buckets of atmosphere. Why wasn't it a hit? Perhaps the over use of similar sounds and over familiar song writing approach? Perhaps they just weren't lucky with the breaks?
The album still sounds great. You can tell it's from the early 80's but not quite in the way you can spot the posing and formulated approach of some of the new romantic contemporaries. Well worth a listen.

I had this album on vinyl when it was released back in the eighties. It was the follow up album to the one that set them in to pop history with Living by Numbers. I must say i missed it. Not having a record player anymore. So when i saw it here. Woww. Great news and i've oredered it. It is full of catchy Mansfield tunes. They were a very underated band. A sound all of their own. It had atmosphere. Many of my mates loved it. NM produced this when times were good. But sadly they split up. It might sound dated now but it has none of the current music cliches which are either

Depressing,
Lets shoot em up manic,
Formula XY factor,
Lets make the song out of tune "Cuz we want it to sound different"
or
Lets make a song so repetitive it will be engraved on your brain.
This album was like the previous but has a maturity better than the first. I read about Tonner Mansfield and his latest exploits in to production. He's out there on his own. His songs are not vogue like the Human League or Cheeky like Soft Cell or Blatant like Depeche Mode but sit there smack in the middle of middle England. Not offensive but just sing along worthy and well produced.
I Wish New Muzik had made that reunion album a few years ago.

Remember buying the LE edition of this in Norway.
Sold it to record/tape shop in 1988.
The CD ( which wasnt available at the time...didnt exist) so great to get (had the tape only back in 1982).
Only decent songs were luxury & while you wait...but the adding of the B sides Office, Village & Guitars was worth it.
These three tracks were better than some of the albums tracks.
The songs were more polished than A to B but the first album was superior. "World of Water" classic.

Getting another re-release on Edsel (previously available in the same format as part of the Rewind series), this band had a sound and style that was all their own. Their first LP was a cute collection of power/electro-pop, spawning some memorable singles (Living By Numbers/This World Of Water), but by their second LP the hits had dried up. Singles 'Luxury' and 'While You Wait' were jolly enough, but too insubstantial to move the singles-buying public in a market saturated by electro-pop. Tony Mansfield, the man behind New Musik, was an earnest and likeable writer and lyricist but he lacked the grown-up credibility of some of his contemporaries and the music suffers from a touch of naivety...but an utterly charming naivety it is. I particularly like 'Back To Room One' which seems to imply that Mansfield hankered after a life in the womb - either that or it's the prettiest suicide song of all time. The inclusion of extra tracks from singles/B-sides is good, but they are tacked on at the end and spoil the poignancy of the original running order. Now, when are we going to see a re-release of the band's swan-song, 'Warp'?

In 1981 I bought this album on vinyl and to this day it remains my favourite album. An album of simply crafted pop songs steeped into a cathedral of synths. There's not a bad song on it, a masterpiece of melody written by a man, (Tony Mansfield) who shunned fame and potential bright lights. What a pity they've been largely ignored by synth mavericks, much less everyone else, as a band who, potentially, could have been huge. So many other bands at the time and since, I feel, were nowhere near as talented and yet were much more successful. Churches, luxury, while you wait, changing minds, design, division, back to room one, are all incredible, but there's not a bad track on it out of the 12 on the original release. I urge any synth or song lover, who are into "the one's that got away" to check out this album, and indeed, their first one, From A to B.
