Many of us remember the 80s as a time of experimentation. For instance, how many musical instruments could be played electronically! This album reflects the electronic music of those days. I couldn't call this soul music, but it certainly had an R&B flavour of its own.
Loose Ends were around for a while, then seemed to disappear over the horizon, like so many good singing groups in those days. Their huge Hangin' On A String is probably the most remembered song from this listing. Magic Touch holds its own as well. The rest? Well, I had a quick listen to the .mp3 offerings and was very surprised to find that indeed, Golden Years WAS the remake of the David Bowie classic, as someone else picked up on the reviewers panel here. It's all good music, and an album I know I'll come to love the more I hear it.
