This is a great album. I saw the furs back in '84 and they were an incredible live band and put out some of the most unique music of the 80's. Richard Butler, with an unapologetic cockney accented singing style, combined with his tobacco soaked voice and backed by an awesome band with a... horn section!
The problem I have with this (and the other furs reissues) is the sound quality. These have been remastered by Sony, and unlike their other reissues (The Clash, Cheap Trick), the sound quality is not all that much better than the old CD's and Epic albums I have from the 80's. I have a couple of their LP's on import British pressings, but I'd hoped that these CD's would sound better. I guess that the master tapes just weren't recorded all that well and they did the best that they could with what they had to work with. All in all, five stars for the music, three stars for sound quality.
