Why This Album Is So Great:

When Frankie arrived in 1984 they changed the rules and boundaries for pop music with just one album. Brilliant pop songs presented in a provoking light ensured them great recognition and huge success. Songs like "Relax", "War" and "Two Tribes" are the obvious classics on the album but my absolute favourite is the beautiful "The Power Of Love" which is one of the greatest ballads of the eighties. Even today, almost twenty years after, the album continues to sparkle and present interesting elements that have aged extremely well. A great pop songs never grows old and Frankie's debut album still manages to sound ever fresh and substancial. You should own it too!!

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