This is one of the first cd's I bought back in 87'. I paid $25 for it and I would gladly pay it again - probably more. Still one of my favorite records of all time.

As many people, I think this is their best work ever ! Despite catchy melodies, it is a beautiful introspective and experimental album. No deep depression but an overall dreamy feeling of uncatchable melancholy where cold wave elements meet beautiful and fascinating soundscape designs and where moving shadows seem to let appear slight rays of light. Listening to this album is quite like watching the moving reflection of sunlight from deep underneath the surface of the sea...
It is a subtile album, as filled with light as it is with darkness, as pop and catchy as it is experimental and deeply emotionnal.
But I don't blame the band for having moved towards new musical horizons afterwards and they have reached great artistic achievements since then. Better that than making again and again the same record.

*I'm french by the way so sorry if my english is not perfect, I just hope it is understandable*

No duplicates. There is the original version without barcode. There is a second edition with barcode printed on the backside (5014436613029). And there is a third edition printed in France (MPO). I also have a fourth edition, printed in France, but the matrix says CAD 613 CD MPO 03 (the listed one says MPO 01).

Are we sure that there are no duplicates in those 3 CAD 613 CD released in UK in 1986? I see no obvious difference between them.

One of the best independent/wve/gothic combos with their best release. Their most famous track is "Louise" has become a classic thoughout the wave community. Apart from "Louise" other tracks, such as "Medusa" or "Back Door" convince by lyrics and melancholic atmosphere.

This contains some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard (Theme I for example) and, like a handful of other records I have, is a world unto itself, totally unique and inimitable. Atmospheric, other-worldly, danceable...this a sound that's gone forever.

High praise for a couple of goth weirdos from Holland. Few other people can get away with outrageous song lyrics like "I'm deeply agonised by love," but it's so damn good you wind up singing along anyway. Their best work, hands down.

A little less dance beats on this one than it's predecessor. Although I think this album is their best work and makes for a sweet, sad but warm listening experience. Gothic Pop without staring too much into the abyss and dwelling in self-pity.
