    Mojo (362-Jan 2024) featured Sparks as that months "How to Buy" top ten as voted by Mojo readers, including this album. I love all of Sparks albums (some more than others of course) but was surprised at some of those that made the top ten.

    1 - Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins
    2 - Kimono My House
    3 - Music That You Can Dance To
    4 - Lil' Beethoven
    5 - Propaganda
    6 - Hello Young Lovers
    7 - Introducing Sparks
    8 - The Girl Is Crying In Her Latte
    9 - No. 1 In Heaven
    10 - Big Beat

      These pink-rim Island UK pressings are fantastic. Great sound, and quiet surface.

        Many people are aware of Kimono my house but a lot less are familiar with Propaganda . In many ways it’s equally as good if not better . Never turn your back on Mother Earth is probably more appropriate now than ever . An album full of pace , wit and wisdom that rocks out .
