This 2016 cd "master" is directly sourced from PTG's 2009 "master", so is the exact same over-compressed, overly BRIGHT sounding mess that one is.

So sad...this album deserves much better. In the meantime, I will listen to my excellent, natural-sounding vinyl LP from 1985.

Dreadful mastering! Too much compression and badly EQ'd. Also probably a vinyl transfer.

Fantastic album! I only got to know some of the cuts on this awesome album by The Limit through Futurefunk samples. But there are some really awesome, solid 80 electro-funk tunes on here. This album really slices the crossover space between 80s Nu-Wave and a lot of the early SOLAR records stuff that was coming out in the 80s, like Shalamar, Dynasty, Klymaxx, SOS Band, Midnight Star, et cetera, as I feel the synths are a bit fuller and more to the front than a lot of the electro-funk from the era, but maybe it's just me.

The opener track, Miracles is a cool track. Cool echo effect on the vocals, lots of synthesizers, but with warm sax playing reminiscent of Hall & Oates - Obsession Possession (Song is in the same key too!) and that hard four on the floor beat that really gets you going...I love it. I would open up a set to it.

Destiny is another fantastic track, reminds me a bit of There It Is by Shalamar. Groovy synth bassline, and the twinkly synths that are oh-so-indicative of the era. And yet the vocal is really smooth.

The 3rd track, Everything About You, is a bit different from the rest. It's a more somber, slower-paced ballad that sounds like something Spandau Ballet or Go West would have put out around the time. Smooth, but a bit cheesy at that.

Could This Be Loved, Say Yeah, Crimes of Passion, are all great tunes as well. Not sure there's really a bad tune on the album to be honest. Throw a party, throw this on the turntable, and dance the night away. You won't regret it. If you're looking for a more unknown gem and you're a nerd for that 80s funk, check this album out! 5/5

Fantastic album of blue-eyed boogie but this PTG CD has horrible sound: "loud" and lacking dynamics. This is also evident in the waveform.

This is probably one of the hardest records to find on the planet, an excellent example of music from the 80's that can be listened to with out sounding contrived. The excellent arrangement of horns and vocals make you want to listen again and again. What happened to this guy and his music ?
