It says rather a lot about the interest in this band that there are actually more "best of" compilation CD's available twenty year after their recording career began (three) than full-length studio recordings (two) released during the duration of that career. "New Clear Days", their debut, still rates above any compilation, and the bonus tracks included with this release make it a worthy addition to any collection. The first track, "Spring Collection" sets the pace (which could be described as heavily caffeinated) and introduces the mix of a very confident rhythym section and sardonic lyrics. "Turning Japanese" is of course the song everyone recognizes by now (ESPN's morning radio show even played it after Ichiro Suzuki's debut with the Seattle Mariners) and is indeed the class of this CD. "Cold War", "America", and "Trains" revert back to the first track in terms of style, and "Bunkers" uses a punk energy and reggae beat not dissimilar to some of the Clash's earlier work, released not long before this album. "News at 10" and "Somehow" set the table nicely for "60 Second Interval" and "Waiting For The Weekend", two obvious tracks calling for release as singles.Read more ›

Why isn't this band here today? I'm trying not to be nostalgic, but the pure pop melodies, the seering guitars and mature, thoughtful lyrics add up to so much more, and deserve to be so much more than a forgotten album from 1980. There is so much good music on this album besides Turning Japanese that it is difficult to understand how this band, and David Fenton particularly, could have just faded away. This is a great album; a seminal new wave record.

The company releasing this CD and the Magnets CD I must give my utmost acknowledgement as they put everything by the Vapors on these two CD's. Before these were released I had three other Vapors CD's that filled in gaps but this CD and Magnets are now the only Vapors CD's you will need.
The New Clear Day cd features the British release that included two songs, Cold War and America not found on the US edition, but also this cd includes Prisoner that was on the US edition but not the British! Bonus tracks include the single remixes and B-sides such as the fantastic songs Here Comes the Judge (live) and Billy, and the single remix of Waiting for The Weekend is also fantastic and included here. Also included is Talk Talk and Wasted, and Sunstroke. I couldn't have done it better, simply a must have.
The Magnets CD is the same story. This also features the singles except it doesn't inlude the Spiders single, which to be honest is very similar to the original, only hardcore Vapor fans can hear slight differences. So my advice is to get these two Vapors CD's and your mission accomplished. Though if you are really a completist, David Fenton, the lead member who composed most of the songs, did release a single after the band brokeup in 1983, tracks are Fresh Air and Buried in Snow, but to be honest, not up to his normal par.

I've loved this album from the day I bought it in the summer of 1980! David Fenton had a knack for writing clever and quirky Pop/New Wave songs, and this album is loaded with them. Apart from their big hit "Turning Japanese" (a song I can STILL listen to over and over and not get tired of even 22 years later!), some of the standout tracks here are "Letter From Hiro" (my personal favorite), "Sixty Second Interval", and the great "Waiting For The Weekend", certainly a song myself and countless other people can relate to!
"New Clear Days" really set The Vapors apart from other New Wave bands of the late 70's and early 80's, but unfortunately, they never achieved more than a cult following, despite the success of "Turning Japanese". They released only one other album "Magnets" in 1981 before disbanding; who knows, maybe greater success would've found them had they stayed together. But even though their career was brief, they put together a classic album, and this is it!

Finally got around to purchasing "New Clear Days" on CD, having had multiple vinyl copies over the years. Think my college band(s) covered 3 songs off this, never "Turning Japanese" though. Unlike many of their contemporaries, the Vapors still sound fresh and contemporary 30 years on--I never really noticed how much the bassist cops his tone and riffs from the Jam, which isn't terribly surprising as Bruce (the Jam's bass player) help get them signed. Why they weren't more popular, I'll never know, there isn't a duff moment to be found anywhere on this disc and the follow-up album "Magnets", while darker in places, was first rate as well. If all you've heard of these guys is "Turning Japanese", do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the songs, like "Bunkers", "Trains" or the flat-out amazing "Letter From Hiro" and be sure to get the import version, as it has a few different songs from the U.S. edition, as well as live numbers, single edits/remixes.
P.S. It constantly throws me off that this is the English version of the album, rather than the U.S. version--different songs, slightly different order. All the U.S. tunes are included in the extras. "Magnets" seems to be the same as I remember the vinyl version, 'though.
