referencing Send Me An Angel '80s Synth Essentials, CD, Comp, CLP3524

I was extremely excited upon hearing talk of this CD being released on the official Real Life website, I thought it would be just what I was waiting for, due to the lack of releases since Imperfection '2004'. I wasn't quite sure what to expect because of the lack of information I was given about the release, but the day it was released I purchased it for full price from Amazon.com. Anticipating it's arrival I was Excited, I opened it and briefly saw what it was from the vacant linear notes and put it in with semi-high hopes. What transpired from that point was in my opinion a great new version of Send Me An Angel (2009), a bunch of so-so if not unnecessary covers of 80's Alternative synth-pop hits featuring The Lead singer/songwriter of Real Life (don't get me wrong a phenomenal vocal performance by Sterry) and 2 early remixes of Send Me An Angel. I was Disappointed, I wanted at least one new track from him! If I were going to listen to these songs in this order I would make a playlist of the originals on my mp3 player. The 1983 remix and 12" remix are great to have on CD if you don't already have them but otherwise I basically paid $15 for three versions of Send Me An Angel. I have no regrets but David owes us (in my opinion) a new album of wonderful dance tracks I don't mind if you have to write and record them during your many 80's remembrance or reunion shows. Just don't release any more cover albums, unless you are re-recording the 1985 album "The Flame" so we can easily obtain it on compact disc.
