5.0 out of 5 stars simply amazing 27 April 2006
By Adam Ast - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Church album of all-time. I have owned this album since 1985 and it keeps getting better and better every year. Initially I liked only a couple of the songs but eventually I saw the genius in all of them. With songs like "Shadow Cabinet", "Volumes" and "No Explanation" it leaves you wondering why this album isn't better appreciated. A brilliant piece of work, a complete masterpiece. I consider it essential in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Big 4 24 Dec 2005
By Todd Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Blurred Crusade, Seance, Remote Luxury and Heyday...all great Church albums (Of Skins and Heart close behind)...Remote Luxury is amazing...Listening to "Into My Hands" is a holy, redeeming experience akin to reading Ecclesiastes after feeling guilty about ones cynicism. "Month of Sundays" is a lovely exploration of ego/alienation..."Maybe These Boys" annoys me to no end...otherwise, perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars truly a great album 3 Dec 2005

This one of the stellar Church albums. Some truly great songs with impeccable production and instrumentation. You can listen to this on over and over and find nuances each time. No disappointments, well worth having.

3.0 out of 5 stars (three and a half stars) Inside The Shadow Cabinet 23 July 2005
By trainreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Church's fourth album includes what I think most fans would agree is one of the band's five greatest songs, namely "Shadow Cabinet." The Church puts it all together on this one -- the memorable repetitive guitar phrase, swirling melodies, unconventional sounds and instruments (including strings, a harpsichord and what almost sounds like a theramin), enigmatic lyrics, and what is perhaps the best drumming that Richard Ploog ever did. It's an incredibly compelling song, but the rest of "Remote Luxury" doesn't even come close.

Sure, there are two other very good songs on the album -- "Constant In Opal" (also an effective repeating guitar phrase), and the moving "A Month of Sundays." "Maybe These Boys" starts off promising with a brash sound, but then goes on for far too long. The two songs sung by Willson-Piper, "10,000 Miles" and "Volumes," are not bad, but conclusively demonstrate the superior song writing skills of the band's leader Steven Kilbey, who wrote the majority of The Church's songs (Willson-Piper would improve with "Spark" on the "Starfish" album). The title and concluding track, an instrumental, made me wonder when David Bowie would break in and sing "Ground control to Major Tom."

"Remote Luxury" is certainly not amongst the band's best efforts, but it is still worth owning because of "Constant in Opal," "A Month of Sundays," but especially because of one of the band's flagship songs, "Shadow Cabinet."
