Probably their best dance track (Heaven). A good mix but the tempo fits in more with the HiNRG tracks.

I saw Until December in a free concert in my first semester of college. They played in the ASUC courtyard at UC Berkeley in Jan 1987. They played both of these songs and it was pretty good from what I remember.

Adam Sherburne may not be the greatest rapper in his role as frontman for Consolidated, but believe me, he was much worse as a singer in the synth-pop group Until December. To look at their picture sleeves, you'd think this was a hair metal band, but they were producing balls-out, gay club-friendly synth-pop. Too bad most of it was only "OK", helped not one bit by the marginal vocals. What's interesting about this particular release, though, is the straightforward, un-synthy cover of "Bela Lugosi's Dead". It's probably what the band is best known for, being extraordinarily well done, and taking very few liberties. In a DJ set it can be used to create a surprising extension of the Bauhaus original.
