The third and final phase of Fashiøn [Music], and perhaps its least consequential. At this point the band was being led by guitarist Alan Darby who was a passable -- if not particularly good -- singer. The only standout as far as the vocals is concerned is "Hit Girl" where a jokey, and heavily processed, vocal effect is used. The material is all highly derivative; one listener described it as "if Talk Talk and The Thompson Twins got together and had a baby, this would be it." If it were a one-off project -- which it essentially is -- then it would be easy to discount it as just another failed New Wave album. But as it falls under the moniker of Fashion -- whose debut, "Product Perfect," is an essential early postpunk entry -- this release seems especially criminal.
