Customer Review

"Nothing lasts, nothing lasts" sang our Steve once upon a time. I'm pleased to say he was wrong.

"Never Enough" is the third single culled from Visage's excellent comeback album, "Hearts and Knives". And, for me, it's the pick of the singles so far, even eclipsing the fantastic "Shameless Fashion". The "Never Enough" CD single like the aforementioned "Shameless" and previous single "Dreamer I Know" is pure synth heaven and excellent value for money.

John Bryan's Widescreen version kicks the whole thing off with over a minute of wonderful strings from the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra best-known for their re-recordings of John Williams' film soundtracks.
The Marc Mitchell mix is also pretty fab with a (and this is the anorak coming out in me) great homage to Mind Of A Toy - it's not just me who's noticed that lovely bit of electro drumming, is it?

I've been a Visage fan since 1980 and am now approaching the big Five Oh so it's wonderful for me to listen to these remixes and still be able to enjoy them. So many bands nowadays have remixes that sound absolutely nothing like the original song. I blame DM for that who've had some horrors over the years.

"Never Enough" really does deserve a wider audience and I'm hoping that it'll get some mainstream play on R2 at the very least.

New material from reformed bands tends to leave you underwhelmed after the initial rush of "Oh my God, <nameofbandhere> have reformed and are releasing a new album". Visage are different. "Never Enough and the album "Hearts and Knives" is fantastic. Hats off to Steve S, Steve B, Robin Simon and all the other people involved in the new Visage project.

"Fade To Grey", "Mind of a Toy", "Night Train", "Damned Don't Cry", "Pleasure Boys", "Shameless Fashion, "Never Enough". Not many bands can release such fantastic material over the space of 30 years.
