In Blue: Special Edition
In Blue: Special Edition
"You've probably guess that I like this lot by now - I bought this for completeness, only to find a few new songs & mixes I'd not heard before.  It's better than many people give it credit for."
Elegantly Wasted
Elegantly Wasted
"Another interesting change of direction by the band following a 4 year break - sadly they never got the chance to build on what they started here."
The Best Of The Vapors
The Best Of The Vapors
"They''ll be forever remembered as one hit wonders for 'Turning Japanese', which is a shame because there was rather more to their repertoire than that ."
Essential Collection
Essential Collection
"A real bargain bin find this, combining a couple of their better known singles with some strong b-sides from the Fish era.  'Lady Nina' has to be one of the best songs they've ever done"
New Jersey
New Jersey
"A great follow up to the world-wide smash that was 'Slippery When Wet'."
White Music
White Music
"It'll always bug me that this lot never received the acclaim their music deserves.  This lively debut effort hints at what was to come."
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
"Nearly everyone I know either loves this or hates it - personally I think it's good but not quite up to the standards they set earlier in their career."
Fuaim
Fuaim
"The one Clannad album that also features Enya - it also marks the beginning of their transition from their early traditional roots to a more expansive sound."
Strength, 1985-1986
Strength, 1985-1986
"More classy tunes from their 80s prime - this reissue has several good bonus tracks."
Get The Knack
Get The Knack
"Another one hit wonder band that actually turned out some decent stuff both before and after they hit it big."
Crowded House
Crowded House
"The talented Antipodean trio's debut album - "Don't Dream It's Over" is the highlight here."
Lil' Beethoven Deluxe Edition

"The Mael brothers somehow seem to get better with age....."
Substance

"Contains all of their singles, EPs & b-side tracks, so complements their two excellent studio albums perfectly."
The Dreaming

"Kate in full experimental mode - amazing what one talented woman can do with a Fairlight CMI"
Reggatta De Blanc: Remastered
Reggatta De Blanc: Remastered
"I've got all five of their albums - this is second only to "Synchronicity" in terms of overall quality."
Abba
Abba
"Their second UK album release is where they really hit their stride musically.  The two hits are the best known songs, but style-wise there's a bit of everything to be found."
Backstreet Symphony
Backstreet Symphony
"Messrs Bowes, Morley & company's debut album - and one of their best....."
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
"Gary went back to basics after the mess that was 'Machine & Soul', with positive results....."
The Platinum Collection
The Platinum Collection
"A real 80s nugget that contains a whole range of styles and nary a bad track to be found"
And Then There Were Three
And Then There Were Three
"Their first album as a trio is better than most people think....."
Electric Landlady
Electric Landlady
"Another bargain bin find that I've come to appreciate - "Walking Down Madison" was the only hit but there are several other quality songs to be found."
Don't Believe the Truth
Don't Believe the Truth
"Yet another album that provokes mixed responses from the buying public - I bought it for the two hit singles and was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the songs"
Poem

"Not quite as consistently good as 'Karma' or 'Semantic Spaces', but it's not far behind."
Yours Truly, Angry Mob
Yours Truly, Angry Mob
"The follow-up to 'Employment' finds the Kaisers still in good form....."
Ten Feet High (UK CD)
Ten Feet High (UK CD)
"Her solo debut is rather different (to say the least) to her past work with her siblings.  Her cover of 'Take Me I'm Yours' is every bit as good as the original though."
