5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album! 23 Feb 2009
By Steven Abercrombie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
A friend of mine had this album on cassette back in the mid eighties. Every song is good, and I mean every single song is good. I cannot find the album on cd, so I bought the album on LP, though I cannot play it until I get one of those USB turntables. It's worth the wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flash and the Pan Back as a Duo 24 Feb 2013
By Morten Vindberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After in 1982 having been around the band format, Flash and the Pan were in 1984 back as a duo. Vanda and Young were no longer committed as providers of songs for other artists such as John Paul Young or Cheetah, and could thus concentrate on writing songs for their own studio project, which had proved unexpectedly highly successful.

A marked difference between "Early Morning Wake Up Call" and “Headlines” is the distinctive use of computer drums, which for some may feel slightly irritating. The songwriting is as always top notch, and the album offers both hits and experiments.

The biggest hit was the very catchy "Midnight Man" with its characteristic table tennis beat. Also the title track and "Communication Breakdown" were minor hits around Europe. It was in this period when it was very popular to release extended dance mixes and all three singles can be found in such versions. An instrumental version of the title track was released in Holland, and this version is to be found here as a bonus track. An interesting detail about this number is that it exists in a version with a slightly softer beat than the somewhat hard and monotonous beat of the album version. This version can be found on the compilation "Ayla" released on Repertoire in 2005.

More personal favorites are the melodic and laid back "On the Road" and the great "Barking at the Moon". Athe slightly funky "Fat Night" should also be brought forward, and again as always you never that a number was included just to fill out the album.

Great remastered sound

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe MP3 Someday? 12 Sep 2010
By Satan Himself - Published on Amazon.com
Another underrated, forgotten band. Besides the hit Midnight Man, there was another song which didn't seem to make it onto any compilations, yet received radio airplay in the States when the music was new. On The Road is a song that, though low-key, stood out as very listenable. It will be a crowning achievement to get this entire effort digitized for MP3 uploads, please?
5.0 out of 5 stars best aussie band 9 Jun 2010
By Fred Flame - Published on Amazon.com
I had this album on vinyl back in the mid eighties.It was one of my favorite.I lived in germany back then and flash and the pan were quite popular over there.There are no fillers on this album.I don't know what happened to that LP,but i finally got my hands on this album on CD.Some ceo better reissue the whole catalog of this best thing that ever came from DownUnder.But this particular album is certainly their best effort.To those who have never heard of Flash & The Pan,check out the movie Rock'n'Rolla.Watch out for the scene where Gerard Butler is dancing with awoman at a party.That is a Flash & The Pan song.You'll love it.
