I don't know how I missed this band back in the 80's, maybe then my music taste was different (New Order, Dep Mode) but having heard a colleague at work enthuse about this group last month I thought it was worth the money in buying a copy.
Well, i'm glad I did. Each track has a quality not often found on albums these days (Keane aside), it is an ideal album to play in the car on a long journey. There is a certain feel good factor to be had in this album, not dreary electro pop associated with some 80's bands but more of a pop rock anthem theme. Yes, Broken Land is the star track, but all of the songs are worthy items.
The band are not U2 or Simple Minds material, but add this album to your collection. I think you'll be pleased you did. I know I am.

I've never forgotten how I first heard of this band. In 1985, I was on my way to visit a friend, and had stopped mid-journey in a very rainy Gloucester for lunch. I heard this amazing drum-based track coming out of an independent record shop, and it drew me in. I now know this track to be "Another Silent Day" (from Theodore and Friends). The whole album played, and I stayed in the shop throughout, sheltering from the downpour and utterly captivated. As it finished, I asked for a copy of whatever it was that had just been playing. Three other evident rain-dodgers did the same. A few weeks later, I was at the (then) Hammersmith Odeon to see Tears for Fears... and to my delight, the Adventures were billed as the support (the tickets hadn't specified). By the end of their second number, they had cleared the foyer and filled the auditorium; all those who usually take delight in missing the support act were rushing in to witness this exciting, brilliant assault on our eardrums. TFF were good too that night, but the added surprise of seeing the Adventures made the night really special. I couldn't wait for the next album - The Sea Of Love - and it surpassed my already-high expectations. If you've missed this extraordinary band thus far, buy this. (Loses one star only because I still feel it was a tad over-produced; nevertheless, the songwriting, musicality and utterly gorgeous harmonies are top-notch.)

Because this is probably the only CD in the music World not to have at least one weak, unchartable track on it.
This is an absolute MUST for every record collection in the land.
Personal favorite is 'Broken Land'.
If you love this and want more of the same try getting hold of 'Theodore and friends'. Another sublime collection of tracks from the same band.
And for something completely different but none-the-less great in it's own right, purchase 'Trading secrets with the moon'.

if you like poetry and weather, this album is highly recommended. the melancholic voice of Terry Sharpe draws the listener close to nature with the bands distinctive musicality. more albums please...

I feel I should have purchased this back in the day. However better late than never. I really bought it for the hit single Broken land which made number 20 in 1988 but deserved a higher placing considering the dross available at that time. That song apart the whole album is fantastic. I share the other reviewers opinion that it is a classic album.

Big into my 80's (most dodgy as you like)tunes as a teenager I really missed out on 'The Adventures' as a young lad. I first heard their music, more by chance, when they were on their way out in the late 80's. I only caught them at the tail end of their success, and mostly after their records and albums had long left the charts. Few groups from that era have stayed with me (now aged 37), but 'The Adventures' have been one of the groups which have stood the test of time. Their best known album called 'Drowning in the Sea of Love' promotes some classic and delivers their most sucessful chart tracks (especially 'One step from Heaven', which is a personal gem of mine) but to be honest the most influencial album for me and the first one I lisented too, was the lesser known album named 'Trading Secrets with the Moon'. To this day this album remains one of my all time most inspirational collection of songs. In my opinion both albums should be a must in any music lovers collection, but if you had to pick one you must trade secrets with the moon. XXX

First heard the Adventures when they were support act for Tears for Fears at the Liverpool Empire way back in about 1985. I thought they were brilliant and rushed and bought the album on cassette tape. I certainly would have paid to see them as the main band, but at the time TFF were my favourite band. After hearing the Adventures, I then went to see both bands again at the Hammersmith Odeon in Birmingham and again what a fantastic concert I saw.

I would recommend anyone to buy any album by the Adventures as the harmonies and sound is so true it is unbelievable, also the diction is exceptional and you can understand every word that it uttered.

This album was my first time in hearing The Adventures playing `The Sea Of Love`, which reached number 30 in the UK album charts in 1988. It also contains two singles from this album, 9 April 1988 `Broken Land` which reached number 20, and 2 July `Drowning in the Sea of Love` which reached number 44 in the UK charts.
I didn`t need to skip on any of these tracks on this album, I was taken in with the sound, I enjoyed the song`s and loved the musical arrangements on each track.
I highlly recommend this forgotten soft rock album.
