5.0 out of 5 stars Great but lost album
Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2007
Indeed this album got brief airplay here in the Salt Lake City area, via the single "Kiss You When It's Dangerous" and then completely disappeared. That was in early 1986, one of the best years in pop music history along with 1984 and 1985. This album is a mixture of Howard Jones, The Fixx, and The Cutting Crew. Jones and the Fixx shared the same producer, Rupert Hine, with Eight seconds so it's no coincidence the music has a similar vibe and sound. Fans of those bands will likely love this album. I actually am privileged to own a CD copy of this.

This is some of the very best synth-pop from the 80's. No filler. No slow elevator music. Unique keyboard sounds and riffs on every song. The singer sounds a lot like Danny Elfman from Oingo Boingo. It is indeed a crisp clear production with all instruments standing out. Awesome keyboard and percussion in the foreground with the guitars and bass in support. An instrumental too, "Land of the Monsters", closes the album.
If you can find this album in any format it's well well worth adding to your collection. Should have gotten the same kind of attention as, for example, Propaganda's or Camouflage's one and only albums.
