        It's almost criminal that this album never got a proper CD release.

          Anyone care to comment on the difference between the 2015 and 2016 reissues, if any?

            I first heard Oppenheimer Analysis' "Devils Dancers" in a CBS Top 100 and to be honest, even though I liked the song, didn't really get into their sound until a couple of years later. I don't even know how exactly. I guess their music was just always around and over time I learned to appreciate it. The instrumentals are really catchy, the vocals have a cool sound to them and the lyrics are just next level. I mean take for example:

            If the radiance of a thousand suns
            Were to burst into the sky
            That would be like the splendor of the Mighty One
            I am become Death
            Destroyer of Worlds

            Seriously how sick is that, especially when knowing that the last two lines are from the Bhagavad Gita, cited by Robert Oppenheimer to express his disappointment in his Manhattan project.

            Overall quality of this release is really good. The recordings are clear, nice and loud. 3 songs a side, 45 rpm on black vinyl. High quality sleeve with lyrics.
            It really doesn't get much better than this.

            Favorite Track: Martyr.

            5 Stars!

              Typical early 80's "cold wave" music. There were hundreds like this with exactly the same sound, same singing, same approach. Weak sense for the sonic timbres, average mixing, yet acceptable singing. The "compositions" are good enough but all is much like a very early Soft Cell demo. The stars of this genre are obvious: Yazoo, Soft Cell, early Depeche Mode, maybe some Human League stuff from the period. Oppenheimer is rather an underground thing beside them.

                  My copy has a spot on A3 that can only be seen via the right angle. Looks a bit like a removed sticker and produces surface noise. Cleaning did not help. Anyone with the same problem or am I just unlucky?

                      Wow, amazing! It's almost unbelievable this music was made in the beginning '80's, having so much elements and sounds used later on into '90's & '00's electronic, techno & trance music productions. This definitely must have been something underground & science fiction back then. Accidentally discovered oppenheimer analysis around 2009, still today i'm amazed with these guys performed back in 1982.Those punchy basslines, sweet synths, subtle beats and analog sounds are candy for the ears of electronic music lovers. With the nice '80's sounding vocals & lyrics, this music could have been taken from a '80's sci-fi movie. Very interesting for me as an electronic music lover is to understand and discover how it al began, this album is definitely an example of todays electronic music. I'm glad this album is re-released today. Simply great! Best tracks in my opinion are: the devil's dancers, cold war, subterranean desire, and men in white coats.
