"Geneting Engineering" is an odd track for a single! It's far from a "normal" pop music track and the end, fading out instrument after instrument, is unique compared to every single of this time I know. OMD were very experimental back then, but give it a chance. I like it a lot. And the so-called "312mm Version" is a nice extended version of it's time.

Genetic Engineering is one of the seminal early 80s-tracks! What a gem it still is! It is simply a pleasure to listen to this track over and over again.

Maybe you have to be an 80s child to fully understand that... I was little when this track came out and I still remember it as if it was just yesterday or the day before yesterday...

Heavily influential just like all of their (early) work. Amazing, cool tracks! SynthPop at its best!
