I don't know of an album title that would be more pretentious, but the music... naive euphonic pop pluckering straight into your heart - pure unadulterated bliss. Everyone should be kissed by OMD.

My copy has the the Virgin red stripe on green and green stripe on red labels. Has the exact same sleeve with cutout. Doesn't have barcode - can't be a reissue can it? Only cat no is DID 12 and is called a Dindisc recording.
