While best known for hits like "Send Me An Angel" and "Catch Me I'm Falling," there is so much more to the band and this CD explodes with good music.
Before I begin, keep in mind that this CD is mostly a collection of single and extended remixes. so, grab the re-issue of Heartland if you want the original versions of "Send Me An Angel" and "Catch Me I'm Falling."
If ever there was a great song that fell through the cracks, it was "Let's Fall In Love." How this never charted, let alone not make the top 10 is beyond me. This is my favourite track on the album by far. Much more up beat and polished compared to the original version on "Flame." This is a high energy dance track that forces you to sing along in your car (so drive at night).
"Always" has a sensational build up, "Hammer of Love" is infectious, and "Babies" is delightfully dark. Of course, you get both the radio and extended mixes of "Send Me An Angel '89". The song first broke the top 20 in 1983, was remixed in 1988, and charted in the top 20 again. The extended mix is a must have.
Unlike so many other 80's bands, Real Life started with a brilliant debut album and just kept going. The sounds and style may have changed a little into the new millenium, but the band's ability to write great music and lyrics shines. If you like good synthpop that does not sound like just another OMD, Depeche Mode or Human League clone, Real Life may be just what you need.
Be sure to pick up the CD that followed this collection, "Lifetime" and the 1983 debut "Heartland," which was just re-issued.

Basically a compilation of "Heartland", "Flame" and the "Babies" maxi single, this is a nice little collection to find its way to CD.

Of course, the huge miss here is not including the original version of "Send Me an Angel". The new version simply does not compare to the original.

I really enjoyed "Flame" and am grateful to find such great tunes included as "Face to Face" and "No Shame". Their take of "Babies" is surprisingly good too.

If you're looking for "Heartland", it has been reissued on CD. It's well worth seeking out that disk for the original version of "Send Me an Angel".

The best track on this cd is the hypnotic "Send Me an Angel" Dance Mix, and the first track which is just a shorter version. My only disappointment is that this cd does not contain the original version from 1983, which is equally as wonderful as the '89 mixes. "Send Me an Angel" is one of the most moving and soul soothingly wonderful songs to ride the new wave in the eighties! If you listen to Depeche Mode or Duran Duran, then Real Life comes somewhere in between! Other big hits from Real Life include "Catch Me I'm Falling" (I must admit, I have always found this song to be kind of annoying), and Always(good song). My personal favorites include "Babies", "No Shame", and "One Blind Love". I think the talent of this group wears a little thin in some of the songs I have not mentioned, but the two "Send Me an Angel" tracks are the centerpiece to this collection.

Twenty years ago when I was half my age, I use to sing this "Send Me An Angel" in my head to get myself up hills on my racing bike, the lyrics taped to my handlebar. Think about it, the beat, the stroke, the sweat... totally in sync. It just gets you going. It still moves me. I never knew who the group was, until now. I'll take it.

I decided to buy this CD for different reasons.
I listened to "Send me an angel" for the first time on the radio in 1985, I recorded it on a tape but I wasn't able to find out the name of the artist; the title I supposed to be "Send me an angel".
After a long time, about 1995, I heard it again on a local radio that played songs of the eighties late in the evening, but I still didn't know the name of the artist, until this song was reissued in a compilation containing some forgotten hits of the eighties, and I discovered "Send me an angel" was by Real Life, a band I really didn't know. This was the original version of the year 1983.
Meantime, there was another great song I listened to in 1986 on the radio "One blind love".
I recorded this song on tape because I found it awesome, really unforgettable, incredibly romantic, but I didn't know neither the title, nor the name of the artist.
I knew the Amazon site in the year 2001, when I started to use computer and internet. I tried to discover the title of this song, paying attention to the words I had been able to transcribe on a piece of paper, I browsed in the many names of artists available on Amazon list to see if a song with those words had been written by them.
Finally, it came to my mind that the style of music, the singer, the arrangements of the song "Send me an angel" were very similar to the song whose title was still unknown to me.
Listening to the samples of this CD, I casually found the unknown title, "One Blind love", a title I had been looking for, for more than 20 years. Bingo!!!!
As you can imagine, this is my favourite song and that's why I bought this CD! I listened to the other songs too and I really liked them.
