Awesome LP, remaster drops "out",
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Penthouse And Pavement (Audio CD)This LP is a classic. A true ageless piece of work. Here you can trace quite a few future types of music here. The title track alone points towards future music from artists such as Squarepusher (in use of the bass), House music (the piano stabs in the instrumental breakdown) and, in Facist Grove Thing, the keyboard parts are copied lock-stock-and-barrel by 808 State in most of their early work.
Remaster has one major flaw, and the reason why this edition misses 5 stars of greatness. The MASSIVE audio dropout on the title track (just before the lines "Pistol, Pavements, No TV") is criminal, and just does not appear on the original LP, or any of the compilation LP's I have heard this on since (it was on 12"/80's comp perfectly). Shame. :(

You're spot on about the piano break in 'Penthouse and Pavement' sounding like House Music. I'm only sorry that I didn't give you a vote earlier, but it's been a long time since I wrote my review for this classic synth album.
