CD Reviews

Not the strongest series of 12" singles on CD...but some har
Daniel W. Kelly | Long Island, NY United States | 09/02/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Volume 2 is heavily 80s focused, and while there are some goodies, there's also some obscure stuff, and alternate long versions from the ones I was looking for. Breakdown is:

1. night train (5:37)
2. living in america (5:56) (this long version is not the US 12", which is a different mix and runs 30 seconds longer)
3. obsession (5:40)
4. Poison Arrow (6:54) (this is the only 12" version I've ever found of this new wave classic, and it's just awful--slow and jazzy)
5. talking with myself (5:46)
6. say hello wave goodbye (9:11) (cool to have, because it wasn't included on the re-issue of Softcell's original CD)
7. back and forth (6:23)
8. Breakout (6:51) (the US 12" had several mixes. this is the NAD mix, which sounds most like an "extended" version of the original)
9. hot water (8:04)
10. promised land (7:04)
11. big decision (4:37)
12. wipeout (5:50) (Not the 12" version I have, which is called the "Wave 1 mix"--it's also mixed by the Latin Rascals, but runs 18 seconds longer, and has crashing waves at the end. This version fades)"
