Synopsis

Album Description
2008 digitally remastered reissue of the Synthpop duo's debut album coinciding with their reunion tour. Originally released in July '82, the album from former Depeche Mode songwriter Vince Clarke and vocalist Alison Moyet explored the pair's unusual potential to stunning effect. From the raunchy Synth Funk of 'Goodbye 70s' to the chilling darkness of 'Winter Kills', it was one of the most complete debut albums to have emerged throughout the decade as a whole, with the cover image of dismembered showroom dummies echoing the music's sense of dislocation from the standard pop formula. Features the hit singles 'Only You' and 'Don't Go'. Mute.

A staple for any "new wave" or 80's collection. Everyone knows the monster dance hits "Don't Go" and "Situation" but I think a lesser known hit is "Goodbye Seventies" - an upbeat, catchy techno tune. I also love Alison Moyet's vocals on "Only You". A must have album.
