5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Blue Eyed Soul - Still Classic 25 Years On, March 4, 2012
By 
This review is from: Alphabet City (Audio CD)
I know this will appeal to no one but the most avid of '80's music fans, but I bought this album on cassette back in 1987 and, for whatever reason, their label never thought the album worthy of the transition to digital media (at least, not in the US).

I've finally tracked down a digital copy (thank you, internezz) and I'm listening to it for the first time in probably 20 years. A couple of things amaze me about this album - first, I remember every song off the album, which is incredible, given how long it's been since I've heard it. Secondly, with another 20 years of musical exposure, I think I appreciate this album more now than I did when it first came out; Martin Fry's soul crooning is fantastic and that element of the music allows this album to hold up much better than so many other 1980's synth-pop bands.

The remixes are easily dismissed - honestly, they're pretty crap - but the album and its b-sides (included here) are well worth seeking out if you've got any fond memories of this undeservedly b-listed 80's pop powerhouse.
