Dug this out after about 30yrs since last played, fantastic, my copy came with a poster, which isn't mentioned here

It's a good album, just not a good Human League Mk1 album

Why has this album never been reissued with all of the consequent extended versions and such?

Seconds is the most classic song on this album. I have it when I bought the original release. Excellent album from the ongoers of Heaven 17

Decent album from start to finish. Not a huge Human League fan, but this album is true classic of this era. Stand out tracks, Love action, The Law, Don't you want me and Open your heart.

Only thing I would change about this LP is for 'Don't You Want Me' to be the first track on either side (for quality reasons).

How can you tell the difference between the CBS and EMI versions help!!!

If you can get a copy in very good condition you will not be dissapointed. A very well produced, dynamic dose of Eighties synth pop. The 1st UK pressing is quiet, dynamic, a real classic.

Later pressings of the UK gatefold are glossy (lightly), and the inner sleeve has square corners.

The first pressings come in a matt gatefold sleeve, and the corners of the printed inner are curved. The later pressings, aside from matrix numbers, come in glossy sleeve and the inner has square corners.
