Still, a good record from a band that seems to be slipping through the cracks in recent music history.
Winthrop Harrison
Culminates in the line "Live the life you love/ Use a god you trust/ And don't take it all too seriously" which instantly brings their sermonizing back down to earth.
Rich Latta
The keyboard work is airy and evocative, bolstered by authoritative doses of electronic percussion and excellent guitar work.

I had lamented that this album ever went out of print, but this re-release exceeded expectations. It contains the entire seven-track UK release (with the original and superior version of "Dog End Of A Day Gone By") and the extra tracks from the US version, as well as numerous remixes. The liner notes are extensive, and include a section written by David J.
And the music itself? This first effort by Love and Rockets (hot off the heels of Tones On Tail) is dark, lush and brilliant. "Haunted When The Minutes Drag" is the best song that the band ever recorded. "A Private Future" and the haunting, melancholy instrumental "Saudade" are standouts. It is all excellent material, and the remixes are a welcome addition, especially the Canada Mix of "If There's A Heaven Above." The songs feature Daniel Ash's trademark fuzzbox guitars as well as stunning 12-string acoustic guitar work.
This is a fantastic album in a superb package. If you were unable to get this cd in it's original release, get this edition now. "Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven" is Love and Rockets at their absolute best.

Someone in the Love and Rockets camp has a habit of fine-tuning their albums and adding new songs after the initial album release date. This is cheating, but no matter. I've fine tuned my own version of what the album should sound like. At least this current release has the original line-up of songs, followed by the bonus material. The following is MY running order for the album:

"If There's A Heaven Above" - "Throw the world off your shoulders tonight Mr. Smith . . ." This joyously hopeful song dives right into the main themes of the album, namely - youth, the mystery of religion, the nature of human existence and the progression of time. *****

"A Private Future" - Starts off as a pretty, idyllic song that progresses into a more ominous exploration of religious beliefs. Culminates in the line "Live the life you love/ Use a god you trust/ And don't take it all too seriously" which instantly brings their sermonizing back down to earth. ****

("Snuff out the ") -- "Dog-end Of A Day Gone By" - A steady rock workout drenched in omnipresent guitars, organ and rumbling drums. ****

"The Game" - This one sounds like being caught in some Twilight Zone timewarp. Ticks along at a deliberate pace like a clock that intensifies as the song progresses. ****1/2

"Inside The Outside" - This one's a cool rocker. Dominated by drums that tumble all over the place and tortured single-note shreds of fury on guitar. ****

"God And Mr. Smith" - a wigged-out remix of "If There's A Heaven Above" sans words. Strange Middle Eastern vocal distortions and other effects swirl around to trippy effect. *****

"Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven" - The word "hypnotic" gets thrown around a lot, but this song definitely qualifies for that description.

Sweet god, what a great record. The music and the way it was recorded in the studio is just AMAZING. Love and Rockets here give us one of the most solid records I've heard from the 1980's. The songs are fresh sounding solid rock (injected with a sense of grandeur and not a trace of sugar coated fakeness - yet it has huge mainstream appeal they play L&R on the radio a lot), you could tell it was a new direction for Daniel Ash & Co. Just a fantastic record from the 80's amazing blend of rock, synthesizer, drums and good lyrics! Take a dash of Beatles, throw in some Jesus & Mary Chain, some Bluesy Rock, Dylan and finally a nice thick layer of gothic roots - then you have Love and Rockets.

"Live a life you love, use the God you trust and don't take it all too seriously."

This is the repackaged edition - the whole album is remixed and sounds perfect also the album art is different. Included is a little booklet about the band's origin.

i listened to this album for the first time when i was a teenager--my friends and i were out late clubbing and trying to unwind, this is the album i would play to close my eyes, to set my soul at ease, and my heart on fire as i drifted off--after ten years i still enjoy this album as much as i did the first time i listened to it--i recommend this album to anyone who likes music combining synth, cosmic sampling and a good douse of classic bauhaus/love and rockets mastery. enjoy!

Raw charisma, an aggressive demeanor, and a strong personality made Peter Murphy the inevitable "star" of Bauhaus, but his "supporting cast" were brilliant instrumentalists, though it was in the service of the sturm and drang of gothic rock. A severe illness kept Murphy from contributing much of anything to the band's last release "Burning From The Inside", forcing the trio that would later become Love and Rockets into recording much of that CD on their own, pressing bassist David J and guitarist Daniel Ash into service as primary vocalists, and finding as a result their own unique energy.

By 1985, this trio (including drummer Kevin Haskins) had recorded "Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven", suggesting that their musical path would now concentrate on the elevation of spirit, on a quest not to explore the foulest, most unsavory elements of the human personality ("The Three Shadows",from Bauhaus's 'The Sky's Gone Out"), but on personal enlightenment, even possibly from a divine source ("A Private Future" from "Seventh Dream").

Most of the standout songs are driven by Daniel Ash's elegant yet simply structured guitar work (both acoustically and with electric guitar providing heavily processed/fuzzed out counterpoint), and David J's fretless bass weaving parallell melody lines around it. Kevin Haskins's percussion provides the adhesive the songs are cemented around, and an astute listener can hear the influence of industrial music as well, sometimes all in the same track ("Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven" comes to mind here, in addition to the Canadian version of "If There's A Heaven Above"), nowhere more in evidence than in the majestic tone poem "Haunted When The Minutes Drag".
