Near perfect pop for and from the 1980s

"Julian Cope. Kilimanjaro. The Teardrop Explodes had few equals at the time, perhaps Echo and the Bunnymen. But they nearly disappeared from sight. Put the record on and remember their great songs. Oh, I mean the CD. Ooops! Listen to this on your iPod while wearing dark sunglasses. Life is good!"
Still gives me the horns

"Great songs great album. Hard to believe I swapped it for "Bad and Lowdown World of the Kane Gang" (but to be fair, that is also a good album). There is probably only one other great example of the use of a brass section from this period and that is the A-side of "Diamond" by Spandau Ballet, where the redoubtable Beggar and Co provided the horns. The B-side however should be taken around the back and shot.
This album mixed disturbing funky little psychedelic imaginings with blasting foot stompers, all powered by Julian Copes great voice. This album really is a forgotten classic.
