Miles Osborne "miles-osborne"

"Quite simply, the very best, most fully realised New Romantic album ever made."
Rage in Eden: Remastered Definitive Edition

"Darker, more complex than anything Ultravox ever recorded - including the John Foxx era. Its such an oft-repeated fallacy that Midge Ure took the art out of Ultravox. Remastered with original cover."
Dare!

"Side 1 (I still think in terms of vinyl) is synth perfection."
Man Machine

"Space Lab, Neon Lights and Das Model - genius"

"The Other Side Of Life and In Vogue are 2 of the most beautiful songs Sylvian ever wrote. The quintessential Japan album."
Journeys To Glory

"Why hasn't this Tuetonic, cold European classic not been remastered yet?"

"Always crashing - this is Bowie's best album. The Berlin triptych was a big influence on the New Romantics."
Roxy Music

"Ok, not strictly 1977-1982, but an important influence. 1980's Flesh And Blood is patchy - but contains the greatest song ever recorded: Same Old Scene"
