CD Reviews

ELECTRO-POP AT IT'S BEST!!!!
Ian Nicholson | Sydney, Australia | 03/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was quite simply years ahead of it's time!Singer/Writer/Producer Tony Mansfield (Captain Sensible, Nick Straker Band, After the Fire and others) knocks out some finely-crafted tunes with subjects ranging from ecological concerns to international politics (bearing in mind this was at the height of the Cold War) - yet making it all thoroughly enjoyable.With a pleasingly-unusual array of some dreamy synth textures courtesy of a Prophet 5 and a Yamaha CS80, a 12-string guitar and a synth-snare(!), this album is a MUST for any afficionado of late 70's/early 80's synthy-pop rock.Straight Lines, World of Water and Sanctuary were all Top-100 hits for the band in the UK. This version contains the B-sides of the singles (which were not on the original vinyl album).Enjoy!!"
