Worth the purchase price for the two singles 'Careless Love' (their sole UK chart entry) and 'No Longer Friends' alone. The 'vast' late-80s 'classy Europop' sound at its finest. They deserve to be rediscovered more widely - one day, I hope to see 'Careless Love' included on one of those '100 Forgotten 80s Tracks' CD compilations you see in supermarkets!

The rest of the record is an eclectic mix of well-produced pop songs - standout album tracks for me are the sparse ballad 'Sweet Sadness' (great drum sound!), the breezy '4 Winds' (hehe), and the slightly sinister closing title track. It's firmly a pop album, but it's somehow a little bit...different, in a way I can't quite put my finger on. All in all, I would recommend highly.

The band name 'Swimming with Sharks' was used only in countries with English as the main language - in continental Europe they were usually called 'Inga & Anete Humpe' around the time of this LP.
