Why This Album Is So Great:

The career of Thompson Twins is probably not remembered by that many people. And looking back they probably didn't make more than one album really worth remembering. But that album - this one - represents the best of what came out of the 80's. Great pop songs wrapped in a stylish and cool production - before the last part of the decade went astray. All their major hits are here but what makes the album so special is that every single track is unique with personality and yet contributes to make the album a whole from beginning to end. My all-time favourite TT song "Hold Me Now" is here in a great extended version but also less known songs like "Sister Of Mercy" and "Who Can Stop The Rain" demand respect. If you're a child of the 80's and like the early Duran Duran and Tears For Fears sound, this album will delight you!

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
