4.0 out of 5 stars "Take your baby by the hand..." Feb. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has the mega hit "Dance Hall Days," which is right up there with "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" as the most recognizable Wang Chung track, Of course, "Dance Hall" is available on countless 80s compilations, so why buy this album? Well, if you like techno dance music with some retro 80s sound, you will enjoy Points on the Curve. The first half is the most retro-sounding and contains my favorite songs on the album. "Wait" is excellent; it is jumpy yet also quiet with quick and precise keyboards. In contrast, "True Love" has a full keyboard sound at the chorus with a powerful beat. "The Wave" is a pleasing, relaxing track while "Look at Me Now" really kicks!
""Don't Let Go" is a nice retro-sounding dance number. "Even If You Dream" is good, although, lyrically, it is not the best. "Don't Be My Enemy" has the most soul with plenty of saxophone. "Devoted Friends" is an interesting ballad. The versus have a different sound as one note does not follow in a predictable way which really adds to the overall sound. It is not the typical ballad and this uniqueness makes me listen to it more closely. "Talk It Out" continues with the more unique, almost spooky, sound but is more jumpy; however, it is repetitive at the end. This album is very solid so, if all you know is "Dance Hall Days," give Points on the Curve a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, so "Wang" is part of the name, so what? Aug. 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
I actually saw this tour when they opened for The Cars in 1984. For the time this came out, it's really a display of technical genius. Computer music was still "analog", sequencers were primitive - the instuments were octagonal, pastel and had LED displays - and everyone had diagonal zippers on their clothes with Kanji charachters (oh, and only one glove on). I got this CD for a trip down memory lane and was quite impressed with the songwriting, the performances and the production. Yes, it has that "hit" Dance Hall Days, which is relatively lame compared to some of the other songs on here. The vocalist is strong and solid. The drummer is so precise I often wonder if it is indeed a computer playing most of the track. Of course, it does exhibit a dated sound by today's standard - lots of analog synths and definitely a British "new wave" aura surrounding it. The songwriting and production leave it able to still stand tall even today. Unfortunately, I couldn't give a flip for anything else this band has done - I found their other albums nearly intolerable - this one really sticks out and is likely the best you'll get from these guys.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good CD, So-So Sound Quality Dec 10 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Brings back lots of high school memories, but I wish the sound was better. I listened to this album on cassette for many years, and though it's great to have the convenience of the CD version, both sound almost the same to me.
Thankfully, the songs are still enjoyable to listen to. BONUS: You can finally find out what Jack Hues sings on "Dance Hall Days" because lyrics are included. Same with "Don't Let Go," which I loved for years and just recently learned what the second verse's lyrics were.
Though the drums and synths are pretty much out of date, this CD is a testament to an earlier era of MTV pop, circa 1983 - 4, before American artists like Huey Lewis, the Boss, and Mellencamp stormed the charts to take back the flag. Wang Chung had the last laugh, though, when they scored two smash singles in 1986 - 7 from their "Mosaic" LP, which is also recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the 80's at their height of Techno! Oct. 23 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved this album when I first heard it in 1983. Hearing it today brings back all those great memories. Wang Chung was on the cutting edge of the 80's techno sound. The music from "Wait" was used in the movie "To Live and Die in LA". They also wrote a song by that name as well. They are an incredibly talented group of artists. I only wish we had heard more from them.

Wang Chung really outdid themselves with this CD. It is great. Wait, and The Waves are my favorites, plus Dance Hall Days..Get this release and To Live and Die in LA....they are both fantastic and super cheap too......
