    Creaking Doors is a masterpiece of Darkwave, highly recommended for fans of bands such as Kirlian Camera.

      Yes this is a perfect album, highly recommended for new wavers and art rock fans that enjoy minimalist loFi approaches.The whole album has a wistful mood of sadness and also real beauty.It is a forgotten gem of the post punk era and also is imbued with feminine vision.If you get the CD there are 7 extra tracks at the end that are interesting but dispensable,they kind of take away from the perfection of the album.

        Awesome album only marred by two throwaway tracks in the middle of side two...politely one could say "experimental" but honestly they are just irritating walls of noise. Great tracks include Enjoy the Pain, Is This The End and Send Them Away.

          Not really very electronic, unlike the description suggests - synths are mainly used as a background washes while drum machines, guitars (funked-up bass and rhythm guitar) and sometimes sax are very much to the forefront, though they only create a wall of sound to support the vocals. Not very commercial, tuneful or danceable; often too dependent on warbling and therefore meandering, or just plain too weird. Not here, not there, not very atmospheric and not that rhythmic. Frankly, I struggle to see the point of even one album of this kind of "music", while the existing three (and as much compilations) are obviously an overkill.

          Having said that, they have one song that redeems their whole existence - "Is this the end?" Now that is something, minor masterpiece of British indie music of the 1980s that should be heard by anyone interested in the genre and time period. The rest however can be safely discarded after one cursory listen.

            "Low Technology" by Pink Industry sets the standards for perfect music. Previously known as Pink Military, the British band presents an album that has evoked so much of my time. I play a track off this record on my radio show almost every week, because it's that good of an album. The best song in my opinion is "Enjoy The Pain", a killer new wave-minimal wave anthem with beautiful female vocals. I don't know if I am going out on a limb, but this might be one of the best albums of the minimal wave and synth-pop era in the 80's. Highly recommended for fans of New Order, Section 25, and Thick Pigeon.
