5.0 out of 5 stars A New Slice Of Heaven, 16 Dec 2005
After nearly eight years and a few problems with record labels Heaven 17 are back. Before After showcases the talent of the Trio by giving the listener a cd full of high energy feel good grooves. Starkly different from any of there previous recordings B/A focuses more on dance music with 10 outstanding tracks for once a group has given us an album that contains no fillers.

Do not be put off by the groups retro label these chaps are pioneers of the UK dance scene and have influenced groups such as Depeche mode and Richard X, with there… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not another reissue, 31 Aug 2003
Lets all make a bomb. I just do not get what H17 are up to this is the latest incarnation of the live cd, Live at last.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 25 Nov 2001
This album defined the sound of Adam Ant, to say this album is punk would not be strictly true it is more like dark pop. A bridge between punk and glam. The songs on this album do sound raw and almost unpolished but that just adds to the feel of things. If you enjoyed the new wave music of the late seventies then this is for you if you just want a classic cd in your collection then this is the gem. Adam Ant is one of the most finest performers of the last 20 years and this proof of that.
