"24 Bit Digitally Remastered edition - Restored to reveal the full richness and complexity of the original recordings" - It's an absolute dog that'll make your ears bleed

This a very special record, excellent in every ways and with good memories.
Returned to this one after not listening it for a long time and was amazed by the quality of this pressing. I have this record in my collection for decades and not a single click, plop or surface noise after a good cleaning in the VRC machine. Lots of new and recent pressings are really below the quality of this Portuguese pressing, even after a good cleaning.

This is Absolutely the digital version that you want as not only is it fine-sounding (cf. the horrid '24-bit' remasterings), but it is the only version that I have heard that has the funky drum-intro to the 'Infected' title track -- note the difference in track-timing here, 4.48 vs. the 4.30 of the other Aus and UK releases.

This disc was so good that when I stupidly disposed of my copy after coming back from Australia in 1995 (which provides an upper bound to the date of this Undated release), the first thing that I did when I returned to Perth in 2002 was to pick up another copy. All other CD versions of this track (e.g., on the UK releases) pale in comparison. Just get it.

Agree with mw. Not really understanding the separate entry. Can these be merged?

Why an entry apart from Infected? This should be part of Title entry.

Angst/Art.

This album came at a good time for me as I was looking for something different than the normal radio friendly music. An tight album of eight songs, Infected is gritty, grisly, and grandiose. Orchestration and some nice brass rumble under the songs about complex emotions. "Heatland" moans the advent of a capitalist England. "Angels of Deception" is a soldier of fortune's ideology about looking for money and war. In "Sweet Bird of Truth" he finds it. But with disillisionment and despair...

But it is the duet sung with Neenah Cherry "Slow Train to Dawn" that really captured me. A sick lovesong/hatesong about an affair going nowhere... or rather too far. "Mercy Beat" is a great driving song but a very sinister story of recklessness and desperation. Dark religious themes interplay throughout. It even lyric checks another song "Sweet Bird of Truth" then delivers the clasic line:

"So one day, I asked the angels for inspiration,
--but the devil bought me a drink,
& he's been buying them ever since."

In a way, Infected is a bit lounge, a bit rock, a bit soul and all these combine in menacing yet awe inspring ways.
