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Though the drums and synths are pretty much out of date, this CD is a testament to an earlier era of MTV pop, circa 1983 - 4, before American artists like Huey Lewis, the Boss, and Mellencamp stormed the charts to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.
