Like the previous reviewer it's hard to believe that I bought this album and it's associated singles a quarter of a century ago.
Visage were a shining light in the early 80s. Their first two albums, the self-titled debut and the superb underrated "Anvil" were both chock full of catchy singles and killer album tracks.
Maybe I'm being a little unfair but "Beat Boy" suffers from the departure of the main creative forces of messrs Ure and Currie. The lead single "Love Glove" was a pale imitation of previous singles such as "The Damned Don't Cry", "Night Train".
This album does have it's moments, but it really just makes the listener hanker for the relative safety of the first album.
Cherry Red do deserve credit here though. Over the last few months they have unearthed some great 80s nuggets and hopefully this is the first of many more released over the next few years.
For those who have never heard "Beat Boy", I would certainly recommend you buy it and give it a listen, but don't expect to hear anything up to the quality of the first two albums.
