A classic album by a sadly under-rated band ! BUY IT !,
This review is from: From a to B...Plus (Audio CD)
This is a classic - I was an avid fan of this album when it first came out and have always been amazed by the apathy accorded to New Musik by the record buying public - the band lead by the incredibly talented Tony Mansfield were adept at producing perfect 'pop' records with great melodies and harmonies while also writing meaningful lyrics, for example 'Living by Numbers' (about the way in which personal contact was deterioirating due to the advance in technology)and 'Dead Fish' (about how absurd humans are in their behaviour and attitudes) - but forget all that, what we have here is a great all round album based on acoustic guitars, keyboards and catchy hooks - these songs are instantly accessible - the extra tracks are largely b sides from the sadly ignored singles 'Sad Films' being the pick. This album should have been huge and should have set them up for a long career, the singles especially 'World of Water', 'Living by Numbers' and 'Sanctuary' should have been top 5 but for some reason were not radio friendly - God knows why! If you feel like taking a chance on a cd then buy this, there isn't a bad track on here ... - Enjoy !!
