5.0 out of 5 stars Love & Rockets: The Beatles of the 1980s, 8 July 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 Album Box Set (Audio CD)
The music David J and Daniel Ash released seperately or together between 1983 and 1989, as David J, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets, is among the very best British music of the period. Bauhaus was often great, but David & Daniel, along with Kevin Haskins, were seriously talented way beyond that important post-punk group. Buy this 1985-1989 set while it's such a bargain.

My own favourite L&R albums at the time were and still are "Seventh Dream" (called the "Abbey Road" of the 80s by the great Pat Fish) and "Earth Sun Moon" (alongside "Love and Rockets" for me it's the "The Beatles" (White Album) of the 80s).

The remasters sound a bit louder than the old 80s CDs but not badly so. You can tell they've used good sources for the main albums as the sound is clear and big, with a pleasing, analogue EQ feel on "Seventh Dream" in particular.

If you don't already have them seek out the superb, essential earlier post-Bauhaus pre-Love and Rockets 1983/84/85 albums "Etiquette of Violence"/"Crocodile Tears & the Velvet Cosh"/"On Glass" (David J), and "Everything" (Tones on Tail). There's also many excellent latter-era albums such as "Sweet F.A" (L&R 1996) and "Estranged" (David J 2003).
