It was Fiction, now It's History

"They were loved by the critics (at least for a while) and by a few other people, but the Sheffield-based Comsat Angels never made the big time. And why? God knows. They had the talent, the songs, the drive and they were there when they were most needed. 'Fiction', their theird Polydor-album, released in 1982, maybe had them at their best, with composer/singer and guitarist Stephen Follows working his way through 'classics' like 'After The Rain', 'It's History' and 'Now I Know'. This wasn't new wave, this was another wave, sound and solid, melancholy and strong, and thank God, now available on CD."
Early Eighties Greatness!

"It has been 5 days since I got this album on a hunch, and it is fabulous! It is very similar to a lot of my favorite bands of the 80's - Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, Talk Talk. I don't know anything about the Comsat Angels, really. To me, they sound like Joy Division with a melody and good singer. It is quite simply great new wave music... in fact it is so great that it is timeless! Dated, but still VERY effective. FICTION is the best album I have purchased in a while. An excellent choice for anyone seeking that early 80's-new wave-gothic-depressed sound so idolized by many 90's artists."
