      Excellent compilation of synth pop classics. Features my two favourite Gary Numan tracks Aircrash Bureau and Down In The Park, The Human League classic Being Boiled and great selections from Fad Gadget, XTC, John Foxx and OMD. Love the artwork too.

        "Underpass" and "Messages" are 7" versions (the latter seems to be neglected in favour of a fuller 10" mix). "Being boiled" is a re-recording for "Travelogue". All the other songs are in their usual versions (despite the time misprinted on Numan song). Overall a great compilation, one of the best of its kind from the era - though I'd make several changes to make it more synthy and "machine-like" :) Recommended to buy on sight.
