Last album from this new wave/minimal synth band not yet available, this is from 1983. I didn't much like the first record (posted long ago on possibly mutant sounds (?)) -- to me it was a bit too simplistic in that minimal synth style, but this is all-out in progressiveness with the songwriting: there are odd touches everywhere, sudden modulations for example in most songs. I really love the gentle, feminine aspects of the compositions and the absence of jumpiness that to me is such a defect of the genre. It's very enjoyable and can be listened to over and over again in my opinion without any boredom. As well, I thought the next record, "Monkey's Midnight Mood' became a bit too poppy again albeit with the exception of one or two progressive tracks.

Notice that 'growing bin' discobasso agreed it's their best record.
