Their first album "Please" was pretty good and "Actually" is almost even better. 4 hit singles : the dramatic and cult tune "It's A Sin", their magical duet with Dusty Springfield "What Have I Done To Deserve This", the haunting "Rent" and the poppy and light-hearted well "Heart".

And like in "Please", again, even the album tracks are very good, the surprising and ingenious "Shopping", the stomper "Hit Music", the harmonic "I Want To Wake Up" and finally the prescient "King's Cross".

"Please" was a classic and "Actually" is perhaps their true masterpiece.

I've just seen a copy of this with no title on the spine, just the catalogue number. It looks as new so I really don't think it's worn off. It's A1-1-1/B1-1-1. My later copy has the full title on the spine. Was the artwork retouched?
