Their 1979 debut album featuring Chelsea Girl. Interesting document of the early stages of their roller coaster career.

Format: Audio CD
This was their first album release, and is clearly dated to the end of the 1970s with its basic-synth sub-punk feel. Despite Jim Kerr's constant whine-of-a-voice, the album does have a few gems hidden in its sleeve. The title track and "Chelsea Girl" often appear on early compendiums, but "Someone" and "Destiny" are just as good and betray their later stadium-rock pretensions. All eight minutes of "Pleasantly Disturbed" is pleasantly challenging with Charlie indulging in some Ultravox-esque violin-playing. This track also shows that the boys had brains and were not pure pop merchants, but rather composers with an eye for the unusual and avant-garde.

Back in the early 80s, avid Smash Hits reader & specky school kid, I "discovered" Simple Minds c/o their Sons & Fascination/Sister Feelings Call 2-fer (purchased with a £3 W.H. Smith record voucher, folks!) & was instantly enamoured. Though my musical vocabulary was understandably quite limited back then, Simple Minds seemed to like all the same music as me (Kraftwerk, Bowie, early Ultravox, my dad's Roxy Music LPs) &, better still, weren't ashamed to wear their influences on their sleeves. They were, after all, very young too, & were still teenaged when they signed to Arista Records' Zoom subsidiary in 1978.

Working my way backwards, & forwards, into the band's catalogue, I quickly realised that it was their earlier recordings that fascinated me most. As great an album New Gold Dream was/is, it's new found confidence & commercialism inevitably resulted in the band reigning in the darker elements of their songwriting, to their detriment I thought. Though their inaugeral LP (released in April '79), Life In A Day was actually the final "early" (i.e. pre-Virgin Records) Simple Minds album that I heard &, for a VERY long time, remained my least favourite. They were allegedly nicknamed "Little Magazine" by the crueler factions of the music press, & not without good reason - Life In A Day liberally oozes references to Real Life & Secondhand Daylight, but it also references John Foxx's Ultravox (particularly their underrated Eno-produced debut), Sparks' Kimono My House, early Cockney Rebel, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (!) &, yes, that eponymous first Roxy LP... the band's combined record collections bascially. What Life In A Day's detractors still choose to overlook, however, is how terrific many of it's songs are.

I bought this album not too long ago and I found it a little weird even though I bought Celebration which had a few of the songs on it . But the more you hear it the more you love it and despite it sounding too Roxy Music or Cockney Rebel it can still rock your socks off .
Songs such as Pleasantly Disturbed and Murder Story still have an edge to them that hasn't dated in 22 years ( in fact all 10 of them haven't dated ).
In the end you'll be left wondering why didn't I buy this album before !

Remember when you had a favourite Lp, but it was so scratched you couldn't hear the music anymore? Here is the answer, the limited edition Simple Minds remasters. Crystal clear, crackle free songs that you remember from years gone by. Highlights are Wasteland and pleasantly disturbed, bringing back memories of the dark power of Simple Minds early days. Great packaging too, the cover and innner sleeve are replicas of the original album artwork
