This review is from: Scoundrel Days (Audio CD)
Along with ABC's Lexicon of Love and Propaganda's A Secret Wish, this is one of the key 1980s pop masterpieces. It's a shame that slack, lazy retrospectives have distilled A-ha down to just "Take on Me" (and even that is overshadowed by it's own pioneering video!) and nothing else. The song-writing and production on this polished jewel stand comparison with the very best albums ever made. Combining an instictive pop sensibility with complex song structures and mature lyrics give this album an appeal to anyone with ears!
