5.0 out of 5 stars ABC'S 'OTHER' MASTERPIECE, 27 Mar. 2011
This review is from: How to Be a Zillionaire (Audio CD)
I have been listening to this album for 26 years and still love it. Don't expect the swooping, silky strings of Lexicon of Love, but you can expect a highly polished album that was undoubtedly geared up for the American market. The songs are generally very strong, with such uptempo classics as the mighty '15 Storey Halo' and the terrific 'How To Be A Millionaire'(which should have been a huge hit). These are nicely balanced against ballads such as 'Be Near Me'. The CD comes with bonus mixes but obviously lacks the lavish gatefold of the original LP. Recommended but be prepared for something a little left field! (It is also the only album I know with a song that rhymes 'London' with 'Undone'!)

Terrific review :) I used to own this album on cassette a good few decades ago. I recently stumbled across a 30 or so year old copy of 'Be Near Me' complete with US remixes that included the bass driven 'Look of Love' but it was the b-side of 'A To Z' that really struck a chord. Superbly produced and delightfully crisp - I've just won an auction over at Ebay for the vinyl of 'How To Be A Zillionaire' and looking forward to giving it a good blast :)
