5.0 out of 5 stars AN eighties classic, 13 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Penthouse And Pavement (Audio CD)
This was Heaven 17's first album after leaving the Human League, and is really the true follow up to the excellent Travelogue.
This was always a bit of an avant guard album and was hugely successful, but because of the experimental nature of the electronic 'pop' it didn't spawn any monster chart hits.
However it was huge in the clubs, and a string of singles were lifted from it.
The biggest hit from the album is in fact the first track 'We Don't Need This Fascist Groove Thing' a perfect piece of eighties political dance pop.
The entire album has a strong political slant and many of the songs are about war and bombs, reflecting the cold war paranoia of the times.
There really isn't a dud track on the original album, my only negative criticism of this version are the bonus track, they are a little weak with the exception of 'I'm Your Money'.
If you are an aficionado of eighties pop, this really is a must have album, and often overlooked after the release of the excellent 'Dare' by the new line up of Human League, a very different commodity.
