'Because the Night'*, was released as a single off this album and it remains my favourite to date, but the majority of the tracks border on first class for different reasons, too. Qualified reviewers have described these far better than I could but the title track
along with re-recording of Privilege (Set me Free)
, from the Peter Watkins/John Hayman production
, also released as a single, come in a close joint second, for me.The last track
- perhaps not such a great (6 minute) finale, but each to their own.
The electric blue-coloured disc is often in my CD player. The booklet contains some background information for the tracks and you get the words to Because the Night*
to sing along to, if you wish!
And it is very hard not to!
