I wish they had sequenced the album into "disco" and "cabaret" sides:

Disco: Don't Leave Me This Way, Disenchanted, So Cold The Night, You Are My World, Heavens Above

Cabaret: La Dola Rosa, Reprise, Lover Man, Don't Slip Away, Forbidden Love,

My initial interest that got me drawn into the band was the disco, but what got me hooked is the cabaret.

Another example of fantastic pop songwriting using powerful themes at it's heart. Still relevant today, a great synth pop LP tempered by some more 'traditional' songs and arrangements.
Their fiollow up 'Red' is just as good.

This would have been a good album if they turned down the politics a notch.
Political views of any kind Doesn't match with music!
