Editorial Reviews

Product description

Absolutely CD Phonogram, 842 967-2, 1990, 17 Track

The only problem with this collection is that all the best stuff, the choice cuts, pretty much come from their first album, Lexicon of Love, when Martin Fry and friends found the magic mix of words and synthesizers. Verbose, punning, and as overblown as a society wedding cake, there was still something about it that was perfect for the times. "Poison Arrow," and "The Look of Love" put heartbreak to a beat while "Tears Are Not Enough" took it all over the top. After that first album, there were only two songs of note, "How to Be a Millionaire," and "When Smokey Sings," really worthy of inclusion here, which is probably when four of the tracks have been needlessly remixed to fill up the remaining space. --Chris Nickson
