With These Hands

(3 out of 5 stars)

"At long last, a much deserved reissue for one of the most underrated 80's pop bands. They released two albums on EMI in 1983 and 85, "Get out and walk" and "With these hands". After the catchy synth pop of their debut, this second effort has a much more acoustic sound with guitars and "real" drums, although you can still hear drum machines on some tracks. The material is catchy and reasonably well produced and doesn't sound too dated even after 15 years. The only complaint I have is that the cd clocks in at just under 43 minutes, with no bonus tracks at all and being sold at a full price. When you buy a re-release cd of a little-known album from 15 years ago, you would probably expect some extra stuff thrown in such as non-LP singles ("Apparently" anyone?), 12" mixes and b-sides. But alas, no such luck...Now the more pressing issue is : is anything going to happen with "Get out and walk" and the brilliant 12" mixes "For you" and "Muck it out"?"
