    I Before E Except After C is really something else. After thirty seconds you go "what the fuck is this", then at one minute you're hypnotised until the end.

      This muistech stamper version sounds superb . Quiet , dynamic and just enough warmth to it . Dare I say it , better than the mofi version?
      One of the essential albums of the synth pop movement .

        Great album completely ruined by the awful "I Before E" - that should have been relegated to the deluxe CD padded out with cutting room sweepings.

          The pressing I got doesn't include images of Yaz as in blue perhaps cause I got mine from a record shop which buy records off of people and buy from record labels and all that. Great pressing, just love the sound of it. Mixing is good and has pretty good vocals and the synth is always groovy. The B side is most impressive as "Winter Kills," reminds me as if this could be on some Thriller movie were we find out the killer. The last song "Bring Your Love Down," is just a blast. Whole A side is filled with great tracks such as "Bad Connection," and "Don't Go,". The song "I Before E Except C," is a represent of paranoia,it reminds me of those Crass song's such as "Fun In The Oven,". I bought this album not really knowing what to expect and was it worth $2, yes it was!
