Taking their name from a fictional pop group mentioned in Anthony Burgess's novel, A Clockwork Orange, (where 'The Heaven Seventeen' are at number 4 in the charts with "Inside"), Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group, The Human League, and formed the production company British Electric Foundation (BEF). ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A gem from the 80s! 22 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
About every 3 days a new "Best of the '80s" compilation comes out and the only Heaven 17 song you'll ever find on them is "Temptation". This band, however, should never be considered 1 hit wonders as this album is packed full of synth pop gems you never knew existed. Amongst the best of them "sunset now" and "this is mine". Great harmonies and great songs. Get it now before the 80s go out of fashion (again!).

Firstly, well done to Virgin (and the band) for getting these generally pristine reissues out there - I have replaced all 3 on vinyl, and a few 12" singles to boot! "How Men Are" is very plush, but not americanised in sound (like the variable "Pleasure One"). There are jabs and jibes aplenty here lyrically, during quite turbulent times, most against a great musical backdrop. "5 Minutes..." is a suitable starter, with gasps and hooligan chorus yells, and leads you into the rest of a more melodic album than the previous two. I personally love "This Is Mine", "Flamedown" and "Shame Is On The Rocks", with nods to their past still aplenty, amongst some incredible vocal harmonies. "Skin I'm In" could equally be about aging or love, and "That's No Lie" could also be about love failing, or something far more politically potent.

That's what makes H17 stand out, they can offer an apparent pop song, but on different levels listeners can interpret to their heart's content!

The sound is excellent throughout, and the bonus tracks include the bizarre dubby Cinemix of "Mine" (only the Filmix has appeared on CD before, I recall). Maybe not quite as incisive or influential as their first two albums, this still shows their craft off well - buy it whilst it's easy to get hold of!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tempting 80s perfection! 13 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Too much written about Penthouse & Pavement, Luxury Gap and How Men Are were so much more refined 80s shlick pop, like Roxy with Flesh n Blood and Avalon, one begets the other...Cinemix was on the 12", I'm so glad it's still mine! Sunset Now and Frankie's Maximum Joy,bright blazing joy in 3.5 minutes, real pop classics..go buy with or without the bonuses, perfect pop!!! With the Cinemix etc. etc., this will last forever...!

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite by H17 8 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
There was an interesting documentary about Heaven 17 on recently, concentrating on Penthouse & Pavement, but I think this is their best album by a mile. I think "And that`s no lie" is the standout but the rest are excellent as well. Worth buying to take you back to the 80`s.
