If this album had been released in England or Germany, it would be hailed as a masterpiece. But it was released in Canada in 1982. Listening to this now, you're struck by the inventiveness and smart melodies. You can hear influences from Kraftwerk and Ultravox, but you also hear a link to what came next. A few of the tracks are eerily similar to New Order, Detroit techno or even Euro house. This album has been cited as influential by several artists, but the public is still unaware. Do yourself a favour and check this out. The deluxe edition adds early singles plus B-sides. These additions are welcome, as they capture a fully-fledged sound right from the first single.
