There's not a bad cut on this album and many are real standouts. The title track was the hit single from this album and rightly so. With its light and easy vocal and instrumental arrangements, "True" is a nice relaxing song that continues to be a playlist favorite for many adult contemporary stations. This is one of those songs that never wears out its welcome. Likewise, "Pleasure" and "Code of Love" are nice tunes that will put you at ease.
Up-tempo numbers like "Lifeline", "Heaven Is A Secret", "Communication" and "Foundation" are equally enjoyable as they have an envigorating, get-up-and-dance quality to them. "Gold" is a strong, somewhat thought-provoking tune that received some airplay and it should've been a Top-10 hit.
"True" is one of the better albums from the 1980's and it's one you will want to add to your collection. Listen to it and see if Spandau Ballet's "True" doesn't give you a lot of "Pleasure."
Though most just know this band from the rich textures of the sensitive balld "True," (featured in the heartwarming Molly Ringwold box office hit, "Pretty In Pink"), there is definitely much more to this talented band, who boast the flair of Duran Duran, with the musical progress of Human League (another criminally underrated 80's band).
I like the hooks that abound on this slinky record, from whizzing keyboards to dance-style beats. Spandau Ballet truly were ahead of their time, and many a band owes its influence to these pop pros. But let me dispense with all the hype. Buy this one for your baby, or just buy it for yourself. Da Peace Dogg thinks you can't go wrong with Spandau Ballet, and Da Peace Dogg never gets it wrong when it comes to hot music!!
Viva La Ballet!!
