Customer Review

on 19 May 2005
I've been an avid fan of Foxx and Ultravox since I was a kid (roughly a sprog of about twelve or so). I bought all his albums on vinyl as they were released and have seen him live several times. He's incredible really and totally unique.
What's this album like? If you're seeking the ice-cool Metamatic or the sheer atmospheric dynamism of The Garden or The Golden Section, this isn't for you. Released in 1985, it saw John...fall in love! Yup, for all those who thought it could never happen, here's the proof! The tracks are totally romantic and whoever the lucky lady was, she was the muse celebrated here.
Stunning tracks: Stars On Fire that sees his old Ultravox friend Robin Simon return on guitar and Enter The Angel which sees a pre-fame/pre-Fairground Attraction Eddi Reader give it some on backing vocals. Foxx continues to evoke the sort of atmospherics only he can really do properly. After this album he took a long sabbatical from music but it's an interesting document nonetheless.
