This album is one of my League favorites. A few of the songs are a bit weak... but overall it is a brillant album. The synth sounds are sweet. Joannes and Susanne's angelic voices are as good as ever... especially in "I Love You Too Much." "Rock Me Again and Again (Seven times)" is repetitively catchy. "Louise" and "Life On Your Own," are great Abbaesque ballads and quiet a departure from the Leagues earlier work. Sentimental and charming never-the-less. "Betrayed & So Hurt" awesome synth sounds and vocals. And finally "The Sign" very Fascination like... and very good. If you can, get ahold of it's remix it's a gem. Over all people should not have expected a Dare II. It's only natural that things change, and I'm glad the League did... they've always tried hard not to stick to a certain sound, and to be true to themselves and the music. A League esential... if you don't like it, listen to it again you might be surprised.

After the brilliant and innovative DARE everyone had very high hopes of the Human Leagues fourth album Hysteria, particularly following the worldwide success of Dare. Hysteria was released, three years later in 1984. There were three singles from the album that made the top-twenty of the UK singles chart and only one, The Lebanon charted in the US. This in my opinion was the best song on the album.

"Hysteria" came to be the result of leftovers and re-workings of a multitude of studio rejections that didn't make it on to they're stratospheric- blockbuster album "Dare." It shows; but whilst we aren't talking about a really poor effort here, it does appear tepidly uneven however, with both stunning and dare I say:- songs that equally tank too. This places "Hysteria" in the realms of a roughly average quality CD. Weak transitions, an absence of spine tingling moments and uninspired songwriting are the real negative big hitters here.,

On a positive aspect, (and there are a few!), is certainly the trio of "The Lebanon, louise and Don't you know I want you". They could have most definitely come up with an excellent EP along those ones. The average plodders include a-bit of the album from "I'm coming back & I love you too much", to "Betrayed, The sign & So hurt". But the real letdowns here is "Rock me (x6) & Life on you're own" which are truly terrible in every aspect.

This CD does showcase some competency and merit here, but it remains one of the league's weakest albums and as a result would probably only be of extensive value to the fans of the band.

Let's get serious for a moment. Hysteria is the Human League's best album. Following on after a huge selling album is, to some ears, impossible and I suspect the knives were poised before it was released. 'Dare' was an outstanding album, with at least four great pop songs - but 'Hysteria' is more consistent over all ten tracks. The introduction of guitar and bass guitar gives the sound more breadth and gravitas. Indeed, the bass-lines on this album are some of the most impressive ever committed to recorded music, particularly 'I Love You Too Much' and 'The Lebanon'...well, all of them really. If your ears are attuned to low frequencies you'll love this - 'Dare' sounds a bit plastic and tinny in comparison. The whole effort is very tight and, while it doesn't offer as great a song as 'Don't You Want Me', you never feel like reaching for the skip button. I can only think that it appeared to be a disappointment upon first release because of the three year gap from 'Dare'. Of course nowadays three years is de rigeuer, even after top selling debut albums.

A must have for any Human League fan! I think this album got an unfair review from many critics. Songs like "I Love you to Much, Rock Me Again, The Sign", and "So Hurt" are fantastic. Suzanne and Joanne's voices enhance many of these tracks. Also true with "Louise" and "Life on your Own" which are slower and more sentimental, both still wonderful. A heavenly album from a great band. Too bad the League didn't promote this album more in the States.

Agma's recent review, ignore it! It is grossly inaccurate, (and all other silly reviews too) none of the songs on this album were even written during 1981 when dare was produced, they were written from the summer of 82 onwards through 83-very early 84.
A marvellous album, all the hit singles, deserved to be just that!
Lots of pathos and wit and musicality.
This album was a winner, never a true flop in any real sense of the meaning, it got to number two. And stayed in the album charts for months, I have the rock year books from that period, and its quite respectable, the chart stats were decent.

Why does this album Have to be an overly critized follow on from dare? Its real good.
I love 'rock me again', some people don't seem to get it, I do, its very ahead of its time, being that they used digital recording techniques and injected a deliberate retro funk feel into it, its really itchy and I could boogie on the dancefloor to it.
Louise is a lovely ballad, a chance meeting with an old flame rekindled, this song has a deliberate 'dry' recording feel to it, dry linn drum pattern, simple dry lead sounds in between vocals all good really.
The lebanon is really powerful and punchy.

All in all a great album
Fabtastic simple and quite modern looking album cover, love that bold colourful type, MANGUE, very funny.
Buy it you'l like it.
Its aged quite well, its no more electronic than todays music, it contains synths, sampling of sounds, todays music is the same in that respect, but its just more boringly executed today.

H Y S T E R I A! ROCKS!!!! 6 times, so there!
