      I’m not convinced about the SQ of this. Back in the day I had the cassette with the bonus tracks, and I swear that sounded better.
      C’mon. Lets have a decent reissue programme of Marcs early work. There’s a veritable goldmine to be excavated!

        Can't get my head around the sequencing on this album, there is an obvious pop side and a mantra/tribal side:

        A: Hell Was A City / Gutter Hearts / You Have / The Boy Who Came Back / Tenderness Is A Weakness

        B: Shining Sinners / Crime Sublime / Ugly Head / Solo Adultos

        But the tracks are all jumbled together, so a challenge to get a lasting listening experience without programming the CD Player.

          On the label on side 1 it says "Guitar Hearts" and not Gutter Hearts as is written on the sleeve notes.

            Beware of CD rot on this one. Although my copy still plays perfectly.

              Marc's first solo album found him throwing off the Soft Cell futurist mantle and embracing the international torch singer persona that had been struggling to break free on that duo's 4 albums. Filled with some of his first solo classics ("Tenderness is a Weakness"; a more rocking version of "The Boy Who Came Back" than it's single release; the sublime "You Have"), it was the start of an exceptionally imaginitive period in his career and well worth seeking out, even at high import prices.
