One of my definite favourite electronic POP projects of the 1980s. Among sucsessful bands of the time like "Depeche Mode", "Eurhythmics", "Pet Shop Boys", "Frankie goes to Hollywood", they managed to score several Top 10 Hits. All singles were produced at a high studio standard and one can hear the craftmenship of the studio engineers, like on many other releases of that time. It was the time when "digital sound" was all new and revolutionary, people were just about to abandon the analog synths and reel 2 reel tape machines which were back in demand 15-20 years later. Distinctive lead voice of Marian Gold. Always deep-thought lyrics. Get their first album with the essential hits.
