Seconds is the most classic song on this album. I have it when I bought the original release. Excellent album from the ongoers of Heaven 17

Decent album from start to finish. Not a huge Human League fan, but this album is true classic of this era. Stand out tracks, Love action, The Law, Don't you want me and Open your heart.

Only thing I would change about this LP is for 'Don't You Want Me' to be the first track on either side (for quality reasons).

If you can get a copy in very good condition you will not be dissapointed. A very well produced, dynamic dose of Eighties synth pop. The 1st UK pressing is quiet, dynamic, a real classic.

Later pressings of the UK gatefold are glossy (lightly), and the inner sleeve has square corners.

The first pressings come in a matt gatefold sleeve, and the corners of the printed inner are curved. The later pressings, aside from matrix numbers, come in glossy sleeve and the inner has square corners.
