4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. G. L. Lowe on 30 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD
I recall the release of this on vinyl and boggled at its odd sleeve (an outer plastic wallet with lines on it made the star on the sleeve burst into life when then you moved the sleeve). I was a big Buzzcocks fan but wasn't as familiar of Pete's solo stuff. So, i bought it, i gave it a little time and now? Well, it's one of my favourite albums ever!!!

The theme running through the album seems to be the loss of love and the yearning and waiting that ensues. It kind of picks up from Buzzcocks' Love Bites: where Pete (and Steve of course) were trying hard to cop off and failing miserable, or simply falling for the wrong person.

Heaven & The Sea is like Love Bites 2: Pete is now trying to come to terms with love that is not reciprocated and yet he's still willing to "wait forever and ever for..." the blue-eyed object of his dreams (that weren't meant to be).

Plus, like Buzzcocks and his previous solo output, Pete still has that philosophical bent (Life Without Reason), he still remains strictly gender-unspecific, he's still very smart lyrically and still has some killer riffs to share: he's a very underrated guitarist (punk roots and cheap Woolworth's guitars do the man an injustice).

Produced by Stephen Hague (who also worked with New Order & Pet Shop Boys), who gave the album a more polished but also heavier sound than Homosapien & XL-1, bringing guitars forward and using electronics as more an embelishment than the mainstay of the music.

In a word: HEAVENLY!!

On your own 16 Oct. 2012
By dh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of my favorite songs from the 80's is the New York mix of On Your Own. If anyone from the record company is reading this, can you release another version of this CD with the extended versions?

For others, this is in my view a more mature-sounding Pete Shelley than his earlier works. Although the sound is very 80's it is the sound of mid-80's, slightly less energetic, and a little more solemn. But it's still a great CD and worth buying if you enjoy 80's music.
