What crap "remastering". All they did was make it louder!

New Wave had nothing to do with "kids". No offence, but you have no idea what you're talking about.

Exactly, which is why you shouldn't buy from Cherry Red. At all. Ever.

I listened to Vice Versa back in the day...thought it sounded horrible. ABC was far superior.

A fantastic collection of a criminally underrated group. Anyone who loves post-punk, new wave & power pop should get this NOW.

The rarest of rarities - a remaster that sounds better than the original!

Fantastic compilation, a who's who of obscure 80's greatness. One of my most played records.

Raddest sleeve art EVER! The best looking sleeve in my collection.

The Pistols were an overrated bunch of untalented hacks; nothing wrong with ripping off someone if you exceed them in raw skill.

Yeah, this whole album is basically Japan-lite, but if you're gonna ape another group might as well ape one that's great.

For whatever reason, the image on the back of the sleeve of Amos & Cass is oddly pixelated.

Unfortunately, this remaster is yet another causality in the never-ending Loudness Wars. Shame on Cherry Red for this disastrous release.

Whatever you do, do NOT listen to this garbage remaster...the mastering is artificially boosted in volume, with certain instruments (like a quirky percussion instrument in the left channel in the verses of "Mister Man") almost impossible to hear. Yet ... See full review

The interesting re-recording (NOT an extended version, as the title misleadingly says) of "I Pray" from From Luxury To Heartache is far better than the version on that album, being more rock-influenced, with George snarling out the song's lyrics. Only ... See full review

Easily Madonna's best album; no song needs a skip, and her high Soprano voice shines best here.

A solid Italo-Disco cut; no songs worth skipping on this one!

Very solid, and criminally underrated album. The Medal Song is the ulimate New Wave feel-good cut.
posted a review of Cyndi Lauper - True Colors. about 1 month ago
Sweet & syrupy 80's pop; nothing amazing, but quite catchy. A good listen for a nostalgia boner.

A bombastic, smooth & sleek single with an awesome bassline.

One of those bands that really should've made it, but just didn't.

One of the most underrated bands of the 80's, their great experimental work was refreshing compared to most other acts at the time. Life long fan of these guys.
