    One of THE best albums of the 80s. Dark, yet poppy, and there's not a throwaway track on the whole album. Definitely the album of theirs to try first.

        GREAT album with some simple PERFECT music: This big hush, Faded flowers, Hammerheads, Coelocanth are immediate blasts. Atmospheric, melodic, very associative pop. Simply PERFECT!!! Try get it, highly recommended!!!

          Beware of the Cherry Red reissue of this masterpiece. This CD screamed out for years to be remastered and enhance the too-low volume and flat dynamics of the original CD version. Leave it to Cherry Red to screw up another reissue and not remaster the tapes! They did "remaster" the bonus disc for some reason, but didn't bother with the main album. Can't understand this one at all.
