Product Description

The bonus tracks on this release appear on CD for the first time in the UK except I Who Know You . The bonus material features 12 versions of the three resulting singles from the album; (Feels Like) Heaven , Ghost Of Love (Special Dance Mix) and All Or Nothing (Extended Version) . The remaining tracks are all related b/sides; The Other Side Of Grey , Old Game Blue Flame , Everyone But You , This Is , Dreaming Of Someone and I Who Know You . This album has been remastered. The CD booklet will feature many of the original sleeves and a full UK discography. This is the most complete collection of the band's material available. Fiction Factory hail from Perth in central Scotland. After landing a deal with CBS Records, they released this album and three singles with the label, the high point being the #6 hit in the UK with (Feels Like) Heaven . The official promo video of the single has enjoyed 670,000 hits on YouTube. The band did release a 2nd album Another Story on Foundry Records but it's the Throw The Warped Wheel Out period that captured the public's imagination and support. The band did reform to appear at both legs of the 2011 Rewind Festival - a celebration of 80's music.

Format: Audio CD
Please ignore the slightly superficial comments from the other reviewers. This is, no doubt, one of the top 10 80s albums. It ranks up there with the best from Duran, Simple Minds et al. It has all the killer ingredients that made 80s pop so powerful. Namely, outstanding production with great depth and subtlety, cracking tunes, soaring vocals and great instrumentation (the slap bass is something special). How this album became overlooked at the time is beyond me.
It's clear that (Feels Like) Heaven (go on the brackets) is an all-time classic but do not think that the rest of the album disappoints. If you appreciate your 80s pop then there is no need to flick through a single track. Ghost of Love has a driving slap bass and super guitar riff, the title track is a soaring piece of emotional pop and Heart and Mind has the kind of high-hat work that Roger Taylor would be proud of.
Buy with confidence - this album deserves all the recognition it can get. It's up there with the Ward Brothers as the great lost album of the 80s.

Anyone looking at this review probably already knows of Fiction Factory; or, at the very least, has heart (Feels Like) Heaven and wants to know more about the band. Well, there's enough on the internet about the band and their short career so I'm not going to waste space here going into it. Suffice to say, this is an excellent album from an underrated band!

Now, the important bit.

You may not know that this album has been release twice. Once as a 10 track CD (the one listed with picture here on Amazon); but there was also a 1993 12 Track version.

THAT version included the songs 'Rise and Fall' and 'I Who Know You'. Both are excellent tracks; and it is well worth tracking down the other version for those tracks. The barcode number for that version is: 5018665297326 and it CAN be found here on Amazon if you search using the code.

Enjoy!

This is one of my all time favourite albums of the 8O's. It is just a shame they are no longer around to brings such classics as feels like heaven and the album track Hanging garden. Come back lads we are lost without your music

Fiction Factory, like so many things in life were only appreciated after they'd gone. I regularly hear Feels Like Heaven and Hate That Ghost of Love on Czech Radio ( I'm a Scot based in Prague ). This album is fine and competent but the high hopes you have of something excellent following the first track are all too soon dashed, it'll bring back a few memories to those who remember this band from their brief period of success.

The first track on the album, Feels Like Heaven, is one of those tracks that sums up the very best music of the early eighties. Play it anywhere, and get ready to remind everyone of the group's name. None of the other tracks can quite touch the first, but who cares? Just repeat track 1 and enjoy...

Fiction Factory will go down as a one-hit-wonder band. Nothing new there - even great bands of longevity like Blue Oyster Cult suffer that fate to those unwilling to delve a little deeper.

And, yes, Heaven is the best track on this CD. But Panic, Ghost go Love and The Warped Wheel are near equal. Hit the Mark, The First Step and Tales of Tears are all very good songs. The Hanging Gardens (experimental), All or Nothing (the most dated) and Heart and Mind (the dullest) are the weakest on the original album, but are by no means poor.

Of the additional B sides, The Other Side of Grey and I Who Know You are really good, while Everyone But You (with the lovely bitter refrain "I dream of everyone but you - I leave you out!") is wonderful. Dreaming of Someone is pretty good too. The only true bum note is Old Game Blue Flame.

I listened to FF's follow-up album at the time but didn't care for it at all. Perhaps Fiction Factory should be referred to as a one-hit-album-wonder band.

Excellent reissue of a lost classic. FF only had two albums and this one clearly sets the tone for what the band was about. A cross between early Simple Minds,Tears For Fears and The Associates. Cherry Red has done a decent job in the remastering process with all the b sides and remixes presented here immaculately. Anyone wondering about the loudness factor: there's none whatsoever . Buy it Now !
