Comsat Angels big beat 80s rock album

"And that pretty much describes it. The Comsat Angels changed their name and signed to Island Records (on recommendation of one Robert Palmer). If you're familiar with CS Angels, then you pretty much know what to expect. This is very similar to their later '80s output, only with a bigger sound. The rhythym section is stonking, big drum sound, bass is very much in the front. The keyboards are too loud, the guitar sometimes a tad bit low in the mix. The songs are mostly fair to good with a couple I would call excellent, the best of them powered along by the groovy, bass dominated rhythym. Nice and underrated."
Like a lost treasure - too some

"First let me say if you are a Comsat Angels fan and do not have this - get it! - you will be very happy to have another cd's worth of material by the guys. Like the other review here says there are problems with the mix ie: keyboards are way to loud at times and Steve Fellows wonderful guitar playing is buried in the mix alot. However Steve's vocals are great as always and the lyrics while maybe not up to say Sleep No More in their depth are still nice. For a reference point I would say this cd is better that 7 Day Weekend and sounds more like a real Comsat Angels recording than 7 Day does on the whole. Some standout tracks are Sleepwalking,She's Invisible and Transport of Delight. Bottom line if you have read negative things about this and thought it not worth buying - don't believe them.. Any longtime fan will find songs to like here.. In fact my wish would be that the band buy back the rights to this recording and remix the tracks - lower(or get rid of) the keyboard excesses, raise the guitar and in general clean up the production. Then they could truly release this as a lost treasure."
