I bought this in '81 in usa as import only...played it to death! Bought it again now and playing it to death! A 5 star album that never tires or dates with time. Every song is a winner!

Their best album and an obvious favorite from the post-punk period. Other Voices. All Cats Are Grey. Funeral Party. The Drowning Man. The original UK pressing is where it's at.

Masterpiece. Still so incredibly good, so many years since I first listened. That's an achievement.

Doubt doesn't really belong on this album, maybe they wanted to shake off all the gloom with it, but I wish they had chosen to put that on the b-side of Primary instead. Descent would instead have made a perfect link between The Funeral Party and The Drowning Man.
