2009 album from the reunited '80s New Romantic quintet. On Once More, the band revisits eleven of their biggest hits and throws in two brand new tracks: 'Once More' and 'Love Is All'. While many have said that a Spandau Ballet reunion would never happen, the band surprised everyone in early 2009 by announcing that they were, indeed, giving it another go. After a very successful UK tour, this exciting release will whet the appetites of those outside the UK who were not able to catch the band on that historic tour. 13 tracks including 'True', 'To Cut A Long Story Short', 'Lifeline', 'Only When You Leave' and many more. Universal.
Unexpected and Unbelievable

"That Spandau Ballet have managed to reform and remain afloat was exciting enough for me but this new release was a totally unexpected treat. They breathe brand new life into songs that were classic to begin with and have elevated them smack into the present. Tony Hadley's voice has never sounded better. New arrangements of classics such as True, Chant No.1, Through the Barricades, and She Loved Like Diamond really bowled me over. I have had this CD in my car for over two weeks now and I have listened to it over and over and every day it's like a brand new CD. When I hear Tony hold that one note for a full eight bars in To Cut a Long Story Short, I realize what an astonishing instrument the voice really is and what a talent he really has for using it. As a musician, I am inspired to the highest when I hear these songs and this new release by SB really proves that the band still has the power to rock."
Waited 20 years for this!

"Oh what a cd!!! I loved SPANDUA BALLET when I was a teenager, and it was my dream come true when I heard they were releasing a new CD and touring AUSTRALIA!!!! This CD brought back so many memories and the the way they reworked their songs is out of this world for me!!!! No one can argue the classic sound of the ultimate instrument THE SAX, and of course the great talent of being able to play it!!!!! I fully recommend this to all Spadua Ballet fans and know you won't be disappointed!! xo"
