5.0 out of 5 stars Lucky Day, 6 Mar 2008
It was my Lucky Day when I received both reissues of Side Kicks and Into The Gap today and overall I have been impressed with the sound and the liner notes are quite extensive. I guarantee listening to this album and mixes again will be a trip down memory lane. It was worth it to have and hear tracks like Love Lies Bleeding. You just have to turn the volume up loud for the drum solo.

It has some indian sounding instrumentation during the intro and is overdubbed… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Waiting For, 24 Feb 2008
Finally the prayers of many Thompson Twins fans have been answered with the reissue of these two classic cds the no.2 album Quick Step And Side Kick and no.1 album Into The Gap. Both these releases have been mastered from the original Arista UK master tapes and the sound quality of these is reported to be very good indeed. As well as the main albums these deluxe editions include the 12" and extended versions of all the singles and the bsides too. Many of which appear on cd for the first time. Though Passion Planet was only a bside to You Take Me Up it is one of the best loved Twins tracks for many fans where it frequently appears in their list of Top Ten Thompson Twins songs.
