Just WONDERFUL! This is the kind of experimenting that could ONLY happen in the 80's. The kind of experimenting that OMD was also good at (in the early days), and the kind of experimenting that Radiohead just can't seem to grasp.

Not quite as great as their amazing debut, "Compas Kumpass", but with that being a SIX star album, it is accurate to describe this as a 5 star.

Oddly, I find the single (Holiday In Disneyland) to be the weakest track of the bunch. The stars here are "Horrorscope", "Dad On Fire", and the beautifully cinematic "Sons Of Sahara"...

HASH(0xa502fbd0) out of 5 stars A smorgasbord of early 80s new wave sounds.... May 15 2007
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dalek is avante-garde early 80s new wave synth music. Catchy melodies, dance rhythms, flamboyant male new wave vocals, and sing-song female background vocals bring to mind the likes of the B-52s and Tom Tom Club, with hints of more structured synthpop bands like Depeche Mode and Heaven 17 and a hint of General Public thrown in for good measure. If you need a fresh taste of 80s new wave, you should give them a try. You're sure to find a couple of really strong tracks.
HASH(0xa5170e04) out of 5 stars Stood the Test of Time Nov. 28 2012
By ztomic - Published on Amazon.com

This Album has stood the test of time for me. The best analog would be OMD but that would be selling Dalek i a little short because it's much much better than OMD. The sound is a mixture of synthesizer, guitar, hard drum and soulful backing vocals with thoughtful and clever lyrics. The lyrics are driven by dark satire giving the album a Gothic feeling. If you love 80's new wave, you MUST have this album! I had the original vinyl and I was really lucky to get it on CD when it was reissued a few years ago but I would pay $50 or a $100 if I had to. For me, this is the best new wave album ever made. It's been nearly 30 years and I still listen to it quite often; I never get tired of it.

Short descriptions of original vinyl song list:
Holiday In Disneyland - Snappy dance song about excess. **** (4/5 stars)
Horrorscope - Driving song with a medium fast beat. *****
Health and Happiness - Slower tempo art song. ***
The Mouse That Roared - Very strange art song with a medium fast tempo. ***
Dad On Fire - Medium fast tempo with dance beat. Has been described as a child's nightmare but I think dad is literally on fire. ***** (5 stars)
Ambition - Fast tempo dance song about what to do to be successful. ***
Lust - Fast tempo dance song; it's an anthem for sex. ***** (5 stars)
12 Hours of Blues - Medium driving tempo about boredom and loneliness. ***** (5 stars)
Sons of Sahara - Slower weird art song. ***
Africa Express - Medium fast driving tempo. Great song! ***** (Solid 5 star)
HASH(0xa5251f84) out of 5 stars impress your friends with your esoteric taste in music April 6 2007

Buy this, read the excellent sleeve notes & impress everybody with your unique tastes & knowledge of very obscure corners of british pop music.

It is also one of the most underrated records of the 80s. Infectious and very witty.
