Featuring Simeone with Special Guests; Renegade Soundwave's frontman Gary Asquith, Kevin Mooney of Adam & The Ants & electro pop pioneer Karel Fialka. A compilation of Simeone's atmospheric synth pop. Some tracks feature Simeone with guest artists on his own tracks. The artist also covers three well know electro classics; by The Cure, Fialka & John Foxx. A good collection showing off the Simeone repertoire in all it's power & glory forever & ever. Enjoy!
Lee Simeone is a wunderkind multi-instrumentalist who specialises in dark wave electro. Described as 'like mozart with synths' one track from his debut album was recently used as an installation at the Tate Modern gallery. --Rough Trade Records London
Lee Simeone has been blown upon the shores of the electronic frontier through his textured and shimmering sound and his soulful vocals. A sense of peace comes from his singing, with synths ccompanying him along the melody in a serene manner.. a faint reverb and sugared keys lead me into a world of peaceful dreams and gentle melancholy. --Kling Klang Magazine Germany
A huge sound, could be something special here! --Future Music Magazine GB

Oh I love Deborah track 3, Polonaise track 4, Anderson at his super smashing best. Every track is a peach.
See what you two can achieve if you play nicely together.
Thank you for sharing it with us.
It's the usual satisfying blend of wonderful melodies from Vangelis - is anyone else more instantly recognisable on synthezisers than this man? - and the nutty, inaccessible lyrics of Jon Anderson. Somehow, it doesn't seem to matter that what's being sung about is pretty much incomprehensible, because the overall effect is one of calm and relaxation for the most part.
There is some sign of the pair running out of ideas here, though. "He is Sailing" seems to recycle some familiar themes and rhythms from earlier material, and the final track perhaps outstays its welcome a little bit and sounds more like a theme Vangelis would have explored more satisfactorily as a solo outing.
Very much of its time - but none the worse for that; this has been a lovely album to re-discover after not hearing it for such a long time.

Good quality recording and will compliment my Jon & Vangelis collection perfectly.Published 8 months ago by mark turner
This is rather laid back after The Friends of Mr Cairo. "He is Sailing" is still my favourite song. It is not a bad album listening to it over 30 years later.Published 23 months ago by Jeffrey Smith
