I was 14 when I bought Broadcast in 1987. I had never heard a song like "(I Just) Died In Your Arms" before nor have I since. I must have overdosed on the tape in the summer of '87, exposing it to all my friends, who in turn, bought Broadcast. Now, 13 years later, I listen again, and it still has a nice upbeat sound to it. All 10 tracks are great, there's no album filler. In 1989, Cutting Crew released their second cd The Scattering, which is just as good as Broadcast. Unfortunately, no one paid attention to The Scattering and the Cutting Crew faded from view. I guess it's living testimony to the quality of an album if anyone still likes to listen to it more than a decade later. Those of us who enjoyed the Cutting Crew have a nice secret--an album that wasn't played to death by a band that didn't play on well after their prime. Buy this cd, it's worth the money.

I stumbled onto Broadcast at a used records store and decided to give it a whirl. It turned out to be a surprisingly awesome album. I'm used to some 80s new wave bands lacking depth on their albums beside their standout single - while When in Rome has some nice songs on their album, "The Promise" clearly stands alone.

Cutting Crew has a hard-hitting album, that confidently places the power single - "(I Just) Died in Your Arms" in the sixth slot. In between the beginning and the song we all knew beforehand are a pack of remarkably good songs. The first four are particularly effective - the energy of "Any Colour" carries over brilliantly into the passionate "One For the Mockingbird". "I've Been in Love Before" makes a smooth, total transition into emotional territory before the dramatic heights of "Life in a Dangerous Time" (a song written about 15 years too early).

By the time we come to "(I Just) Died in Your Arms", the power single isn't needed to convince us of the talent and vision of Cutting Crew - it only confirms what we already know.

Other strong songs on the album include the deceptively sedate "Sahara" and "It Shouldn't Take Too Long." The title track sounds curiously similar to the music of Howard Jones.

The above seven are, I think, the strongest songs on the album, but Cutting Crew makes no real mistakes with any of their songs. This is a remarkably packed album, and an essential addition to the collection of any 80s fan.

-----
As an aside, I should caution people not to put any stock in reviews that rip on Cutting Crew's main single and the album as a whole, without mentioning anything about the other songs. Transparent reviews like that clearly illustrate the reviewer's failure to listen to the album. Sad, but true.

Three Englishmen, a Canadian and one of the notorious pop
anthems of all times. That's how I would have described
the Broadcast affair if it wasn't for my roommate Chris.
We were freshmen back in 1987 and he used to listen to his
huge collection of cassettes the whole day long. CUTTING CREW's
songs were among his favourites so I nearly got brainwashed
by their constant repeat. However I got the chance to
crystallize a thorough opinion about this album. It sure
isn't innovative. Does that bother me? H..l no! They sure
sound too American for an English band ( sly old fox Kevin
is to blame for that). Does this bother me? H..l no!
They don't use very subversive or sophisticated lyrics.
Do I mind? Why bother? They made it very clear: Don't be
fooled by those who feed you words, they just twist & tighten
up the tourniquet (One For The Mocking-bird). The song that
has gotten to me the most is Sahara, cause it has this feeling of peacefulness, just like being in the eye of the storm.
I Just Died... has already taken its seat next to legends
like Hotel California & Satisfaction. Why this LP never
made the British TOP 40? Maybe Asterix & Obelix weren't
refering to the Romans after all. Who can say?

Ah, man, the 1980's.What a great time it must of been, so mellow and carefree, A LOT of very fine music came out of this decade that can almost now be dubbed with the "Classic" moniker.Although I'm a casual fan, I wouldn't be able to remember it, for I arrived in 87'.Which, in retrospect, is even more of a reason why this disc(or-LP?????!!!)can be considered great music. Few albums like this one can be enjoyed even after all this time.Which brings me to this overlooked gem. Ok, so we have Cutting Crew with their debut and unfortunately last popular album;"The Broadcast". The year, in fact, is 1987(!!!!!) and lord knows the amazing single"(I Just) Died in Your Arms" is being played all over the radio. Ok, while still a well-writtened and melodic song, this tune was doomed to over-exposure.The talented outfit known as Cutting Crew was destined to be remembered only for this now ubiquitous 80's hit. But truth be told people, this song, taken out of context, sounds like it could've came from the 90's AS WELL!In addition, ALL of the songs on this album could've (SHOULD'VE!) been hits, bar-none.

What about the music itself you ask? Well, Cutting Crew certainly carved a sound all their own. The music could be classified as almost"jazzy" up-beat pop rock.Nick Van Edee's voice is smooth and has a pattened light -hearted energy to it. All the songs are very well written and the production is inpeccable.Synth's are employed but if only to add soothing atmosphere and hold the songs together.This music is NOT in anyway "New Wave".The band sounds as if they had been playing together for years. My personal favorite is the closing "Broadcast"- this song will leave you speechless, and almost take you on a journey. Put on the headphones, chill out, and listen to this tune and I promise you the stress will just dissolve. Definately a must have for any music fan.Check it out!
