Well, that about sums it up: 39/45. Still a great album to own and get it now!
The album is brittle and dark during the majesty of Stories of Old and Lie to Me, but gets loud and in-your face in People are People and Master and Servant. Blasphemous Rumours conveys anger and confusion; It Doesn't Matter and If You Want depict a sense of hope within hopelessness, while Somebody finds DM in the throngs of a powerful, self-effacing ballad
Overall the album winds it's way through it's self-titled theme, "The world we live in and life in general", and it does so very well and completely apart from anything else out there. In 1984, nobody was doing this stuff the way DM did, if at all, and Some Great Reward personifies their iconoclastic character.
Lie to Me and Stories of Old spearhead DM's direction forward from this album. This is a must have for any DM fan, or anyone looking for something different and pioneering.
