I am a huge fan of the previous Real Life releases and a fan of cover songs, however, this seems to fall flat overall. Perhaps it is simply that Real Life knows how to craft their vocals and synths to produce a really great sound, but when copying another's song, they are stuck with limits that are not conducive to that sound. They take no risks with these covers. There might be one I liked enough to plop on a playlist, but even now I can't think of which one. I desperately wanted this to be good, and it simply wasn't. But, all things being subjective (especially music), you may enjoy it.

I must say I am big fan of Real Life. They were are one those under appreciated bands from the 80's. One of great things about the band from down-under is that they are still alive and kicking. They have continued to put out music over the years. The bands line-up has changed over the years, however David has always been the main vocal point of the band. Most of their material is out of print with the exception a couple of their albums. It's a shame. They have some great material. On to the review. This is a cover album of all 80's tunes. Not sure if David choose these or Cleopatra Records, they did the same with Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons fame. Though most of the songs don't stray to far from the originals. David and Company have slightly altered some, putting there own touch on the songs. Some work great and fit perfectly with David's unusual vocals. Some of the tracks that I think work well; Sweet Dreams, Cars, Fade to Grey and Blue Monday. The other tracks in my opinion are misses. All in all a decent effort. I felt is was unnecessary to include 3 mixes of Send Me and Angel. One would have been fine. But you know how the old saying goes. There is always that one song that will seal the fate of the band and they will be forever imprisoned by greedy records companies to forever sing those songs. Check out the album!!! If you are an 80's fan this will fit nicely in your collection. Just waiting for that next album of original material. Loved the last imperfection.

This is one excellent CD! Sure the band updated the song Send Me an Angel!~But its as great as the others they did! And sure they redid a bunch of other songs from the 80s from other bands songs but its still a great CD! A must have for your CD collection!

Great shame that another reviewer rated this one star after only listening to some mp3 samples, quite frankly this deserves better and some respect is due for this classic Aussie band who should have been bigger.
The songs covered here can easily be found on various 80`s synth comps so it's nice to hear them done differently, not a million miles from the originals but significantly different to add a certain freshness to them and done with obvious affection for the originals by masters of the genre.
If you were around at the time I guarantee you will feel suitably nostalgic despite how recently this was recorded, I only hope they do another.
If had a criticism, which this is not, it would be that it's a shame they did not redo their excellent track Catch Me I'm Falling for this.
Buy and enjoy, you won't be sorry.
