I'm not sure if this is their first release, or their second, but REMOTE is an early classic for Pat & Greg Kane. Hit singles "ORDINARY ANGEL" and "LOOKING FOR LINDA" are the first two tracks, kicking the album off in style. As is the norm with H&C, the album contains a wide variety of styles and speeds from ballads to funk tosoul, to jazz-inspired grooves, and this is no exception. At times, I felt a definite 'Prince' vibe, at others 'James Brown'. Greg's superior musicianship is, as always, a perfect complement to Pat's powerhouse vocals, and the album has a solid set of songs that don't date, which is impressive for an LP forged in the ostentatious late 1980's. Pat's ever-inventive lyrics, which mention both technology and emotions in the same song, are present and perfect, and REMOTE remains a must-have for H&C fans old and new.

When reviewing this album you cant use the argument "through rose tinted glasses".This was and still remains I mighty fine soulful album, possibly an unrecognised classic 80, s album.It brought the Kane brothers wider recognition, despite previous success with the album SEDUCED AND ABANDONED, which garnered hits Strength To Strength, Labour of Love and I Refuse.
Every track on this album is a gem, although overshadowed by the massive hit Looking For Linda.Other hits, although to a lesser degree from the album were Ordinary Angel,Violently and Sweet Invisibility. Guy On The Wall is such a funky soulful track, Dollar William likewise with, yes, nice banjo accompaniment. The Only Thing More Powerful Than The Boss has a great singalong chorus, Where We Wish To Remain is a nice jazz number, a genre they would revisit a few years later.Three Foot Blasts Of Fire is a greatt stomper and Remote, the title track is a beautiful ballad to end what is a great album, with top notch productions and musicians.A political album that delivers a message, but with soul, pop all thrown into the mix.The boys also delivered some quite exceptional b.sides and remixes and 12 versions of tracks from the album which really you shouldnt ignore.Go for the A, s and B.sides cd to discover those gems.
The boys are still touring and churning out albums today.See them live when you can.

I used to own this as an LP, but this is a remix and has lost a lot of the drive and punch I used to experience. Very disappointing.

Remember buying an album version of this when it came out at first, however my turntable had a "vinyl allergy" and the record was returned for a tape. Fast forward 25 years and this is still an amazing recording. Tight as tight can be horn sections, sharp vocals...and the memories. "Is this one for Paisley ?"

At the time I mainly purchased singles be it vinyl or cd and hue and cry suffered by this, its only lately that I brought the cd album and I have certainly missed this jem.it has a jazz/funk/blues feel with hits of say bands like level 42.there is no bad tracks on this and is enjoyable from start to finish, now available as a download, so I wont go into the tracks' you can just listen to the tasters of the tracks before you buy .I also recommended the cd singles from this album...
1;."Ordinary Angel" [hoedown mix] with the additional track "im spending you"
2;."Looking out for Linda" [slow train home mix] which includes "Under neon" [bright lights big city mix] and "he wont smile" Along with the 7" version of "ordinary angel". All add immensely to the album which have on my mp3 player.
.give your self a treat and try it. And if you enjoy it try "open soul" album as its similar in feel
