Classic late 70's electro,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reproduction (Audio CD)
I was browsing some of my early disc purchases on Spotify recently, whereupon I came to 'Reproduction' the first full album by the Human League.
When I first heard the loudening opening beat leading into 'Almost Medieval' that was it - it all came back to me. When initially heard this - way back when, it was without par. It was new and exciting. Listening to it again I was surprised that again, it was still fresh and exciting and to be honest, still without par.
It is a great example of the new wave of electronica that burst onto the music scene in the late 70's/early 80's and does not (to my ears) sound dated at all, and I have kept reasonably up-to-date, with the latest music over the intervening years. It possibly even sounds more 'edgy' than I recall first time around. Much more depth than the more pop orientated 'Dare' - which again is a great album, but definitely more mainstream/pop.
Great riffs, fantastic pace and Phil Oakeys's deep voiced gravitas makes this a 'must listen' to all true music affectionado's.
