After two ground breaking platinum albums in the early 80's, Heaven 17 lost it only to be over taken by former bandmates The Human League. So it's a wonderful surprise to find that Ware, Marsh and Craig have come up with a modern classic. This is the album that should have followed on from The Luxury Gap. Bigger Than America cannot be described as a simple retro step back to the electro early eighties. It's a skilful mix of modern electronica with those warm analogue synth sounds which they helped pioneer. Some of the sounds on this album could have come from their time with the Human League. But what really sets this album apart from the others is the strong collection of songs, which all have that Heaven 17 trademark of melodic perfection. Martyn Ware does a good job on the production of this album with the inclusion of modern dance beats and crystal clear vocals from the superb Glenn Gregory. Highlights include the album opener Dive and the haunting Do I Believe and there are no filler tracks on Bigger Than America. Strongly recommended if you loved their debut album Penthouse & Pavement.

Catchy melodies and clever lyrics make this another brilliant Heaven 17 album.

The hidden copy-protection stopped my iPod enjoyment which cost a quality star but I don't resent buying the download too! (Much)

The CD was as good as new, plays perfectly and the case in very good condition. I bought the CD on the strength of one of the songs but have now listened to the whole CD a number of times and can recommend the whole album.

Definitely a return to form after Pleasure One & Teddy bear, duke & psycho. They even bettered it with Before After, but still well worth a listen.
