Such an excellent record. I feel like it doesn't get as much attention because they hadn't yet shed the synths, which to some ears may border on cheese, but to mine really emphasize the emotional power of the vocal delivery and the music. Their following albums become progressively more "mature", minimal, and existentialist (if you can forgive me) in sound and lyrical content, but "It's My Life" is hardly lightweight, even compared to their following discography. Hands down one of my favorite synth pop records, and one of my favorite records period.

The pressing itself sounds great. I grew very accustomed to a lossless digital format and the used copy I recently came across is much more full and revealing, so much so at the beginning of some songs I'm wondering whether or not I have heard them before.

Also, my copy says: "MASTERED BY EMI/A" in the dead wax, not "mastered by liberty", though the matricies are the same.
