Format: Audio CD
A wonderful "compilation", if you can call it that, of early Martha and the Muffins (later, M+M), a horribly underappreciated Toronto band of the early '80's (and continuing through, at least, 1992). This CD contains the entire Metro Music LP, a briskly stunning piece of new-wave power-pop, as well as a handful of tracks from Trance and Dance and This is the Ice Age (each available in the US previously only as imports). Anyone who listens to the two "Ice Age" tracks will hopefully try to seek out the entire album, as well they should - although never released on CD, even the original vinyl is worth seeking out to anyone who enjoys their pop with a brain, with a Roxy Music-esque twist.

you may love this gem from the early 80's. It has the minimal mood of Wire's Chairs Missing, the saxophone drone of Romeo Void and the sultry/ironic vocal style of Martha Davis and the Motels. It is the epitome of the 80's art school sound. It's modern and spare, but tuneful. It is detached and abstract. It represents the triumph of a redefined and stripped down approach to pop music that no longer exists. Echo Beach is a great song that begins the CD and all the tracks from the original Metro Music grow out of each other like crystals.

Unfortunately, this album is only available used on e-bay, and how glad I was to have found it. A great collection of greats (many of which appear on Retrospective). A couple of tracks from Metro Music (Indecision, Hide and Seek) and Trance and Dance (Suburban Dream, Was Ezo) stand out. They just don't make music like this anymore.

First introduced to M+M via Mystery Walk on vinyl. Recently started collecting on eBay, this being the first I picked up on CD. Played this CD every day since it arrived. Martha/Mark, it's time for another album!

My favorite song of course "Echo Beach", but every song just about is good on here. This band was perfect for new wave, but ahead of it's time too!
