This album most certainly reminds me of high school drama class. All the cute girls in the class were into the New Wave, along with all the strapping young lads. This one was certainly one of those albums that was listened to by everyone in the goth/new wave/techno pop crowd. An album I found after finding early Depeche Mode, and New Order. If I'm not mistaken the first time I heard it was on a mixtape my then girlfriend made for me. She also would introduce The Smiths to me on that tape. It was also when I started to notice that Sire Records was indeed "all that". I love Moyet's voice, and Clarke's techno pop and percussive techniques. Now listening to it years later, I love the experimentation of this album. Even though they say that it was only "a bit of fun"; some of the best art can come from pure improvisation and experimentation. Something clicked on this album, and it tapped into the early 80's sound of Sire Records. - "Can't stop now. Don't you know. I ain't never gonna let you go. Don't go" - Michael - MFL
