HASH(0xa5ef748c) out of 5 stars Excellent EP June 6 2009
By Jim Shulse - Published on Amazon.com

This EP was released after 'Dare' and before 'Hysteria'. Great tunes, really an extension of 'Dare', favorites are 'I Love You Too Much' [redone poorly on the Hysteria LP] and Mirror Man. The sound quality is not quite as good as from recent remasters, but a welcome addition to the current catalog anyway. A must-have for Human League fans.
HASH(0xa5ef76b4) out of 5 stars When The Musical Conversation Really Did Turn Sept. 18 2015
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Just taking a listen to the major breakthrough album that was Dare! was a year and a half before this? It was clear that a major part of the Human League's basic sound,outside their instrumental approach,was going to be soulful dance and funk music with a lot of strong melody. Honestly not a bad way to go when electronic pop music and what was used to create it was still in it's infantile state of development. While the band were recording their next full length album? They elected to extend on their new approach by releasing this six song EP during 1983. And it proved to be a major continual step in the right direction far as they were concerned.

"(Keep Feeling) Fascination" is my favorite song by this band-starting the album out in it's extended version and ending it on a re-edited and sampled improvisational mix. It's essentially a Sly & The Family Stone style vocal trade off between the groups male and female voices-right down to the bass singers part and instrumental breakdown. "Mirror Man" gets the uptempo percussion flavor of mid 60's Motown down perfectly for an equally strong number while the danceable "I Love You Too Much" and the dramatic mid tempo rocker "You Remind Me Of Gold" are more about electronic orchestrations. "Hard Times" is a brittle,funky dance number to round this out.

This EP is a superb extension on it's predecessor. The funk/soul influences on that album are actually the definition of most of this one. To talk a bit about my personal experience and having already reviewed the 45 for the title song? This really does remind me of my very first exposure to this band. And really got me to understand just what the UK new wave/synth pop movement really meant set against the post disco black music freeze out of early 80's America. Seems that overseas? Groups like this were actually innovating on those ideas in new and technologically advanced ways. And that in a word describes the music found here.

Between 'Dare' and Hysteria' The Human League released this great EP domestically. It never made it to CD, but finally it is over at the MP3 store. Go check it out. Fascination!
HASH(0xa5ef7c48) out of 5 stars Great Sounds of the Future April 1 2011

I bought this on cassette when it first came out, and then as a digital download as soon as I found it. This EP is excellent start to finish, and features the bonus "I Love You Too Much" Remix that was not on the original. It still sounds fresh to me, and I am still excited about the music when it ends.
HASH(0xa5ef7e94) out of 5 stars This is a fun 80's synth pop EP June 17 2015

This is a fun 80's synth pop EP. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the radio edit of Fascination is not included. The extended version is close to the original, though.
