Absolutely agreed with the comments below regarding sound quality. Cherry Red have excelled themselves, although to be fair they've been doing quality reissues for a few years now. They've listened to the complaints, and have acted accordingly. Top... See full review

posted a review of Japan - Ghosts. 5 months ago
Having just listened again to Ghosts after quite a few years, it strikes me how it feels like somewhat of a Darkwave anthem.

Lyrically of course it fits the bill, plus the synths are damned "doom" at times. Of course the chorus melody is chirpy, but... See full review

The Olmec Heads were already highly respected for their uplifting anthems as mallam says below, but personally once they released Magic Man that was my mind set that they are LEGENDS.

A sublime album of wistful Indietronica, from the ever reliable Jim Noir this time in collaboration with vocalist Leonore Wheatley.

Noir's melancholic touch is as evident here as ever, although on this album you won't find any of his trademark witty... See full review

What's the betting that the lyrics are really about Errol walking past some kids on their way to the Blitz club?

It should be noted that this digital Bandcamp release is noticeably louder than the CDr promo.

While it's not brickwalled, on comparison the CDr rip is much easier on the ear.

A truly fascinating album. While yes, at times it's clearly rooted in 1980, overall the feeling you get is rather timeless.

It's an album that constantly surprises you, at no point do you feel bored or that "this song sounds like the last". Destiny... See full review

As usual, thank you. Just listened to a few tracks from this today (having previously only known No GDM), and your passionate review has me set on buying a copy.

Cheers man, keep on writing.

Worth the price for Some Speculation alone. A sensual, sexy (yet sinister) stepchild of I Feel Love, it pulses with a respectful tip of the hat to Moroder. However, Neil's lyrics are quite the opposite of Donna's exhaltations.

For me, the definition of a great band is when their b-sides equal the quality of their singles / album tracks.

With Alternative, PSB demonstrated this with stunning ease. Almost every track would fit on their albums and nobody would blink an eye.... See full review

I stumbled upon this release page quite by accident, but when I read "1994, UK, Progressive House" I decided to check it out.

The Mike Monday club mix is silky smooth, but still with a spiky electro touch. Absolutely essential.

As a bonus you get the classic LRD remix too.

Agreed regarding the original. I first heard it on a React compilation, then it got the Spot On reissue.

It didn't get a major release until Nebula in 2004 (a good five years after it hit the clubs). Even then I don't think it hit the top 40.

Now THIS is how all 12" singles should have been in the 80s.

Put the extended mix on the a-side of course. But ALWAYS include the original version / radio edit on the b-side.

This 12" basically replicates the 7" on the b-side, still at 45rpm but... See full review

The sign of a good band is when they have quality b-sides. It shows they care (but also they have a wealth of good material).
