I first bought this album 20 years ago, and having played it again recently I was pleasantly surprised to hear it was still standing up as strong as ever.
If you are considering buying your first Wang Chung album, I can strongly recommend Mosaic as their best, and this one comes a close second.
If you were in your teens when this came out, like I was, the album tracks encapsulate the feel of the time.
As a true fan of Wang Chung the other single 'Don't Let Go' and all the other tracks are far superior to 'Dance Hall Days', which was a purely commercial attempt to top the charts and nothing else. Like all good bands it is the album tracks, not the singles, that make the most enjoyable listening.

I gave another opinion on an earlier album "Huang Chung" and purposely avoided remarking in detail upon the musical content.
I'll be a little more fulsome this time.
Despite the attraction of "Dance Hall Days", it isn't the best track. Although it is superb, and memorable as a pop song, with its ringing intro chords, eminently singable chorus and its driving sub-rhythym, it doesn't possess the power of tracks like "Wait" with the beautiful cascading harp-effect, the driving pulse (try flying along the motorway to this track - but try also the album "To Live & Die in L.A"), the distantly grinding guitar, the syncopated punctuation and staccato finish.
The tribal nature of, and the chanted intro to, "True Love", this time punctuated by smooth passages, are most enjoyable.
"The Waves" gives us, yet another jittery, but smoothly lyric, pleasure. Lovely little touch with the alto sax dying at the end - it ought to be so with dear old Mel Collins involved.
Staccato is a Jack Hues feature, I might add.
Triumphant is a fine description of "Look At Me Now". High 80's bomber, this one, exploding a big stick of H.E along its flight-path.
On, what was, side two of the old cassette (track 6 onwards) we encounter "Don't Let Go". Following a tip-toe couple of bars, off we go with high energy, driving music. Well orchestrated and harmonically fine.
"Even If You Dream" enters with dreamlike jangling bells and cymbals and then rapidly takes up the Hues staccato, once again, continually punctuated by more fine harmonies. Strangely erotic, incestuous undertones that are accented with Chinoiserie for good measure. The beat drives on, though.
"Don't Be My Enemy" is, yet another, pulsing track. Not the strongest, musically, but still good.

Format: Audio CD
The reviewer who described this as '80s drivel' has no appreciation of where this album sits in the development of 80s pop. Wang Chung hit some incredible highs on this album, matching cracking production with soaring tunes to create an emotional and powerful work. The only thing stopping this from five stars is two or three tracks that dip below the quality line in terms of tunes or chord-progression. However, the highs more than compensate. 'Wait', for example, is an outstanding example of 80s powerpop at its best whilst 'Don't Be My Enemy' ranks as one of the best singles of the 80s (if an alien came to Earth and wanted to know what 80s pop was all about then this track would pretty much say it all).
If you have an appreciation of 80s music then you'll already have this album. If not then I would thoroughly recommend. It's not quite up there with 'Madness of it all' by The Ward Brothers (or as rare). But it's close. If you can find it you should buy it.

One of the great joys of the original POTC was the massive space and clarity. This CD has none of that airy atmosphere. What a shame - tantamount to fraud in my estimation. Apart from that, if you want a cool beer mat, this is the disc for you. Of course you'll have to fill the hole then, so maybe not.

Wang Chung ... ahh ... the memories! Little-known band from the 1980's (mainly because they were more successful in the U.S. so despite being from the UK they spent much of their time over there - fair enough...)
This was, I believe the band's debut album - and it contains their one stand-out "hit" - "Dance Halls Days" - a cracking tune which still sounds fresh today. My other personal favourite track on here is "wait", which was also included on their wonderful soundtrack album for Friedkin's "To Live and Die in LA".
But I digress ... this is a fun album. One which I cannot recommend TOO highly, but overall it is worth the money.
Final piece of quirky trivia: did you know that one of the main members of Wang Chung is the father of Jack "Jamie from Eastenders" Ryder? Oh yes, it's true! Enjoy.
