My memories of this album date back to 1988 when I got it's cassette from a friend.I listened to it, mostly in my car and never thought of changing it for months together.I had only heard I JUST DIED... before, but I found each and every other track as wonderful as I JUST..... This album is complete in all respects; the music, the lyrics, the variety, the compilation, everything. Till date, I am yet to find an album so complete and so bewitching. It has songs for different moods. ANY COLOR makes you dream. You would feel like falling in love with I'VE BEEN IN LOVE BEFORE. Listen to SAHARA if you are melancholy. The notes of the title song BROADCAST are so rythmic. LIFE IN A DANGEROUS TIME is really radical and the bass that it delivers is amazing. The voice of NICK VAN EEDE is simply enchanting, soothing and incomparable. An album that you will treasure & cherish all your life, the way I have over the last 15 years. If you are a music-lover of the eighties, you just cannot afford to miss out on BROADCAST.

I originally had this on vinyl when it was first released in the '80s. I listened to it on many a teenage night as I lay in bed. When I got rid of my old stereo, the turntable went with it and my vinyl sat forgotten collecting dust.
Recently, I got "Broadcast" on CD. I don't know if it's been remastered or what, but the sound is extraordinary. I hear so many new sounds and instrumentation that I didn't remember hearing from the vinyl.
Regardless, this album remains an excellent piece from the '80s. While not groundbreaking, they do have some creative moments. Gems include the wonderfully uplifting "One For the Mockingbird", the beautiful "I've Been In Love Before", the straight-forward rock of "Don't Look Back", and the soothing "Sahara". The big hit from this album was the ubiquitous "I Just Died in Your Arms", which holds up well after 15+ years.
This is one of my favorite albums from the '80s. I'd advise anyone who appreciates the '80s sound to add this to their collection.

Three Englishmen, a Canadian and one of the notorious pop
anthems of all times. That's how I would have described
the Broadcast affair if it wasn't for my roommate Chris.
We were freshmen back in 1987 and he used to listen to his
huge collection of cassettes the whole day long. CUTTING CREW's
songs were among his favourites so I nearly got brainwashed
by their constant repeat. However I got the chance to
crystallize a thorough opinion about this album. It sure
isn't innovative. Does that bother me? H..l no! They sure
sound too American for an English band ( sly old fox Kevin
is to blame for that). Does this bother me? H..l no!
They don't use very subversive or sophisticated lyrics.
Do I mind? Why bother? They made it very clear: Don't be
fooled by those who feed you words, they just twist & tighten
up the tourniquet (One For The Mocking-bird). The song that
has gotten to me the most is Sahara, cause it has this feeling of peacefulness, just like being in the eye of the storm.
I Just Died... has already taken its seat next to legends
like Hotel California & Satisfaction. Why this LP never
made the British TOP 40? Maybe Asterix & Obelix weren't
refering to the Romans after all. Who can say?

After rediscovering '(I Just) Died In Your Arms' on a local radio station, I went on a hunt to find this track to add to my music collection. My quest eventually led me to Cutting Crew's 'Broadcast' CD. And as a pleasant surprise, I discovered that all the other tracks were gems in their own right, and there were even a few familiar tunes I didn't even know they performed ('I've Been In Love Before', 'Life In A Dangerous Time'). It's one of those discs where I love listening to every tune from beginning to end... a rare find indeed. And it's 80's pop/new wave- one of my top fave genres to listen to! The best of both worlds...
I've heard of a second album by this group, but my efforts in finding it on CD have been fruitless. Sadly, "Broadcast" seems to be Cutting Crew's only enduring contribution to 80's pop. But considering how much I love this disc, I am happy to see that they took full advantage of their brief moment of glory. Good job guys.

This record, of course, is to be shunned by those who cannot look past the fact that is a top 40 record, but if you listen closely, there are some incredibly imaginitve and creative moments on this recording. Produced by Terry Brown (of early RUSH fame) the opening track, Any Colour, shows right away this group can hammer out a tune with driving rhythms and an upbeat feel; in essence, it sets the tone for the record. The highlights of the record are songs that run the gammut between soft and furious; One for the Mockingbird is lyrically a sweet sort of goodbye or yearning for a lost love, once again the band uses different sounds and textures that are unheard of in most popular music yet this one is about as radio-ready as you can get. The title cut and I've Been In Love Before round out the diverseness of a group who proved that you could stretch the boundaries of conventional pop. Terry Brown also deserves a good deal of credit as well.
