3.0 out of 5 stars Not at all bad 15 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Skyscraping was to be ABC's final album, released in 1997 with its futuristic cover design, and these days appears to be generally regarded as the album ABC wish to forget. (Even 2001's "The Very Best Of" compilation totally ignores it). That's a shame, as this is actually quite a good album.
"Stranger Things" was excellent single material and should have been a hit, and elsewhere there is good songwriting and catchiness, and no duff tracks here at all. Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17) contributes much, and the 1997 sound and production is quite rich and clean (nice acoustic guitars).
It sounds in places very reminiscent of several classic bands of the 70s/80s, and this seems to have been very much the intention here -- it doesn't sound like Fry is 'stealing' ideas at all from his influences. Skyscraping is by no means an album Mr Fry should be ashamed of -- quite the opposite!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great record that was overlooked 29 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Classic abc record. Well written and recorded. Lexicon of love for the 90s! The remaster version has a second cd of b sides and remixes that are very interesting to listen to. The sleeve notes are extensive and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!! 28 Jun 2009
By M
Format:Audio CD
I'll be brief. Every track, except one is a cracker. A complete album with no filler, far better than their earlier stuff. I have heard 1000's of albums and would put this in my top 50. Martin Fry should have carried on in this direction.
