It blew me away. It changed my life. I tossed the REO Speedwagon, Foreigner and Styx into the trash cazn and dove head first into this new British wave.
Almost 25 years later I still get goosebumps hearing the opening "record scratches" that are the precursor to the electric guitar's "Bow Wap! Wo NA NA, Bow Wap!" of "Respectable Street".
This album is a must! And in the remastered miniature album replica format, it is even better!!
Now, let's hope Virgin releases a set of XTC Single replicas (like Costellos', Duran Duran's and the Beatles). That would round off my collection.
