regardless of your taste in music this should be in the rack. goes from jumping around lets dance numbers to tried and tested oldies but goodies. there were many albums in the 1980s but this one jumps out at you. unique, brilliant,enough said !

the pleasuredome is one of the most incredible, original and inspiring albums ever created. i like many genres and many artists yet no song is even vaguely akin to 'welcome to the pleasuredome' its a song that can take me somewhere that no other vocal piece can acheive to do so. The album is suprisingly varied and 'san jose' is probably the most 'easiest' easy listening tracks of the most softest melodic fealings ever to be heard whilst 'welcome to the pleasuredome' is confused, powerful and tumultouous with multiple interpretations and great lyrical content and intoxicating back beats; the album remains (for me at least) one of the bets ever created and will never cease to take me to places that no other ever will; this couldn't disappoint!!!

Just updated by downloaded this. The copy on my IPod was from a cd I bought in the eighties which sounds too quiet. This is one of my favourite 80s albums and is of its time. It is cool, interesting and is a good one to run to. Recently read "Nasher Says Relax" written by the lead guitarist who brought the background of this album to life for me. They were megastars in their day and split up after two albums. Since then the record label has been reissuing and remixing their music to squeeze every last penny out of them. The two albums have always been enough for me ! Buy them both, they are extremely good.

This was a replacement buy. This version of the album with longer mixes, Happy Hi and no San Jose was the first version I owned on CD, but lent it to somebody and never got it back! I've got the reissues / remasters but good to get a replacement of this version. Mixes are now available on CD elsewhere but it's still a great sounding album. Trevor Horn really worked his magic here.

4 stars are for the album itself, dropping one star because the album itself is not in the original format, tracks in different order & the digital download has gaps between the tracks which is a bit of a pain as some of the tracks run into the next.

A great album from the '80's (if you like that sort of thing). My first experience of downloading music and apart from one error message for which I couldn't find an associated problem, worked a treat.

Good sound at a good price. Enjoyed this music for years, pleased I've finally purchased something I only hear on "Gold"!

a bit hit and miss on the whole , obviously the hits are the highlights. worth a listen though for Trevors Horns' production

In a wide-ranging, 2 page interview with Mojo [252, November 2014] Frankie's charismatic front-man Holly Johnson was asked about how he saw the absurdly over-hyped, but short-lived, synth-rock group now. He spoke frankly about his disappointment with their artfully-packaged, Trevor Horn-produced 1984 debut, which was created with the aid of members of Art of Noise, The Blockheads, and Yes. He said: "It was a ridiculous thing to make a double and padding it out with covers, but by that time we were tied up in contractual obligations and I'd given away our power, in many ways. I'm not saying it's bad but all that Spitting Image ________ [impressionist Chris Barrie provided the voices of Ronald Reagan and Prince Charles] is extremely dated and kind of spoils the album."

He is right: it could easily lose cod-funk songs 'Wish (The Lads Were Here)' and 'Krisco Kisses'; the inter-song skits are as funny as an episode of Red Dwarf, and interpretations of 'War' and 'Born to Run' aren't as good as those of Edwin Starr and Bruce Springsteen. But, this intermittently engaging LP does boast an audaciously overblown proggy title track - that took up the entire first side of the original double vinyl - a camp run-through Burt Bacharach's cocktail jazz song 'San Jose', and 3 slick No. 1's - 'Relax', 'Two Tribes', and 'The Power of Love' - that say as much about '80s pop culture as worthy stuff, like 'Shipbuilding', or 'This Charming Man', do.
