CD Reviews

I. L. Price | Heart Of The UK | 08/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the UK's most influential LP/CD from the early 80's. John Foxx has been sited by Gary Numan as a major inspiration. The music is stripped down to the bare bones (mono synth lines and basic drum machines), but the sound is still full and gives the feel John was looking for. All the tracks are classics. UNDERPASS, ON-ONE DRIVING and MILES AWAY were all hits in the UK. Images of urban concrete, cars and metal claustrophobic intensity (METAL BEAT / HE'S A LIQUID) provide the theme throughout. If you've never heard of John Foxx (former lead singer with Ultravox) I insist you MUST check out this release. It's fantastic even 20 years after it's first appearance."
Made to be Stolen?
B. Lynch | USA | 09/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You can always tell which CD's are the truly great ones: they are the ones that seem to get stolen when you aren't paying attention. This is one of them. Regrettably, it's out of print, so it can not be easily replaced.At any rate, the few people who have copies own one of the great works analog-synthesizer music. Right up with Bill Nelson's "Sound On Sound", Tangerine Dream's "Stratosfear", and of course, John Foxx's own work with Ultravox.A bit too cerebral for most of today's teen ravers, dumbed down by "airhead talent" like N'SYNC, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears. But a great find for the serious music lover, and the conoisseur."
A definitive e-lectronic collection
B. Lynch | 02/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album totally rocks. I bought the CD because I had worn my old-fangled LP out. Interestingly enough, some songs I hadn't noticed before began to grow on me. The bonus tracks are cool.One downside, though--this has to be the worst-quality recording I have ever purchased. It sounds like they used a fifth-generation master to record it. _Lots_ of hiss. But it still totally rocks!"
