In fascination - with the eyes of the world we stare!
on 4 April 2017
First up, this version IS the latest 2015 issue on 180g vinyl (with mp3 download if you like that kind of thing) - I was surprised with it being £7.99, but took a chance. Result! It went up to £18 the day after!
I bought this one day 1 and went to that tour (every UK tour since 1979 bar one) - ok, it was a departure from the previous style of the Moving Pictures & Permanent Waves period - and a definite tangent to Hemispheres/2112 etc, but in retrospect, it needed to be - the 3rd chapter as it were. Had my doubts for a little time when it came out, but soon became a favourite album. "Digital Man" is just like nothing else they had ever done before - and live, well! And bettered still on the 2007 tour!
Not even an average track here, from the superb "Subdivisions" to their NASA tribute "Countdown" - and the absolutely splendid "Losing It" and "Weapon".
Maybe one of very few bands and albums that were credible in that 80s period (***shudders***) - sounds superb and relevant in 2017! Gleefully added to the collection of vinyl re-releases (just for the sake of it) - if its CD you want, I'd recommend the Sectors boxes.
