I don't know of an album title that would be more pretentious, but the music... naive euphonic pop pluckering straight into your heart - pure unadulterated bliss. Everyone should be kissed by OMD.

referencing Architecture & Morality, LP, Yel, DID 12

My copy has the the Virgin red stripe on green and green stripe on red labels. Has the exact same sleeve with cutout. Doesn't have barcode - can't be a reissue can it? Only cat no is DID 12 and is called a Dindisc recording.
