Actually rather good.,
This review is from: Liverpool (Audio CD)The first album, Welcome to the Pleasuredome had the title track, Relax, Two Tribes and The Power of love, all of them massive hits. However, much of the rest was filler, though Black Night and Only Star in Heaven are quite pleasant.
At the time this album seemed rather disappointing, with a more dark and murky feel and less gloss to it. Personally I prefer it - it sounds more like a real band and there's hints of anger and frustration in the songs. The two main hits Rage Hard and Warriors of the Wasteland are actually very good songs that suffer because they are not Two Tribes etc.
The rest of the album is also fine. Personally I don't like Watching the Wildlife too much, but Maximum Joy makes up for that.

She should stop the pain, stop the pain
She should buy us all a drink"
