At best, "Beat Boy" sounds too desperate in trying to find a new formula - by getting stuck trying to re-capture some of the grandeur of "The Anvil", while ending up sounding as dreadful as, say, Sigue Sigue Sputnik's "Dress for excess" a few years too early.

Steve Strange and Rusty Egan alone may have saved the picture, but the ideas here just don't click - blame it on the pressure, the excess and all, everything here sounds so sadly forced. Looking back on it 30+ years later, some will find there's actual value in this, third album by Visage, but apart from curiosity it may provoke (thanks be due to a great album title, mind you), "Beat Boy" remains a painfully dull and forgettable combination of out-on-out rockin' synth-soul/funk clichés of the time. One song that only slightly manages to creep up under the skin in terms of "enjoyable" is the very last one - "Yesterday's Shadow". Ironically so, some might say...

Bought this (vinyl) album back in the 90ies just to have my Visage collection complete and disliked it.
Now nearly 30 years after its original release I got the CD, used for very low money, again to complete my CD-collection, and...
I DO LIKE IT NOW !!!
I can't believe it myself, but today this albums is a great view back to the 80ies! Visage hass not be as cold as on the first two albums, they made good music even after changing their lineup, having left the core to Ultravox!
For lovers of music from the 80ies a must have!

It's obvious that clocked at 4:50 this is not the full length club version of Love Glove.
Who were they trying to fool?
