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.
