this album is simply a masterpiece a marvel of music and incredible the emotions that it manages to convey to me i believe that the more great satisfaction in a musician is just to make you feel emotions inside the human soul and something deep that music can unleash after all, all life is made up of emotions in my opinion visage deserve a place of great respect in the world of music and the emotions I feel in listening to their music are incredible a love between a man and a woman can sometimes end and the memories of what it was remain but the music does remain because you only have to listen and if it is able to unleash emotions within the human soul it remains forever as in the case of great visage i am very grateful for this to all the members of visage and especially to steve strange dear steve strange i never got to know you in person and i am very sorry for your loss this is my greatest wish i hope to meet the great steve when the time comes that i have to leave this life

If you love Visage, you’ve got to get yourself this Rubellan Remasters series.
Fantastic sound! Great bonus material too. The only thing that’s not to like is the horribly thin plastic jewel case, giving the CD a cheap appearance while it is in fact a quality product.
What a great album The Anvil is, anyway.

Brilliant reissue!!! Excellent, dynamic sound from the original master tapes. Great bonus tracks, too! "We Move [USA Remix]" is previously unreleased!

Different track-listing from the German vinyl LP, or standard UK/EU cassettes (also see differences on the Greek cassette). However the transition between the end of "Damned Don't Cry" and "The Horseman" is a rather clumsy, abrupt, beat-edit, which does not work atall well.

Seek out the original UK pressing as the sleeve's finishes were not made on other countires' pressings. One of Peter Saville's yummy designs with Helmut Newton photography. Pure art.
