Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Originally released in 1984, No Sense of Sin, the debut album from Liverpool duo The Lotus Eaters, fitted in nicely with much of the intelligently crafted but somewhat fey pop--think Aztec Camera or Haircut100--that was around at the time. Their solitary Top 20 hit, "First Picture of You", still sounds pretty good, but the surprise is that some of the less well-known cuts hold up even better. Those chiming guitars at the start of "Can You Keep a Secret", or the languid Bowie-esque dance groove of "Put Your Touch on Love", suggest that Peter Coyle and Jem Kelly were unlucky not to score several more hits. Appearing for the first time on CD, Vinyl Japan has made the reissue more attractive by adding a clutch of bonus tracks and 12-inch versions which, until now, have been hard for aficionados to track down. --Johnny Black

You're fan of pop songs ? You're listening every day your Smiths' records ? Bye this one, you won't be disapointed. And I'm sure you already know "The first picture of you"... For me, it's a landmark in pop music and in tne eighties.

This is one of my favourite 80's albums and it's great to see it on cd at last. It's a real shame that it didn't sell when originally released in 1984 as there are some songs on here crying out to be hits - Set me apart, for one.
"first picture of you" is still a classic - very summery but also a little bit meloncholic, much like most of the songs on the album.
It's great to have the bonus tracks too, especially "two virgins tender" which was a b-side believe it or not but is a truly beautiful track.
Buy it - you won't regret it!!!

"The first picture of you" is one of the most perfect pop songs ever write. If this came out today it would have been a number 1. I feel sorry for a lot of 80's bands that never got higher in the charts due to the shear quality of great song writing around that time, New orders bizzare love traingle is another fine example along with a lot of Talk Talk songs that had the same fate. This is one beautifull album that would have sold as many as Coldplays albums if realised now.
