I woke up today feeling like listening to this masterpiece.
I'm got a bit of an eighties Madonna thing going on at the moment and, for some reason, realised that I didn't actually own True Blue. God knows why. What an album!
Funny you should day that as every time I play Secrets Of The Beehive I think Madonna should cover Waterfront. I have a fantasy Madonna covers album where she also covers Marlene On The Wall.
Yep. One of my all-time favourites, and the best thing David Sylvian's ever done (just ahead of Gone To Earth).
Listened to this just the other day, a great album.
I was listening to this in the afternoon when I was getting myself a rest because I needed to regain energy in order to carry on studying. A quite motivating and ass-kicking album, I'd say.
I agree. Although it's only in the last few years I've realised just how good it is. Better late than never I suppose.
Courtesy once again of @anfunny2003 and @ModeRed over in the Billy Mackenzie thread.
It still bugs me that Perhaps is only on CD as part of the 2CD set with The Glamour Chase. I have fun switching the booklets around, depending on which of the two albums I am listening to, but a standalone deluxe with the 12" mixes and other rarities would be great.
Typically, I would gravitate towards the singles on Perhaps (Breakfast especially, my God what a track), and would just put up with some of the more outre experiments like Helicopter Helicopter. But listening to it now, the lyrics of Schampout are almost Morrissey-esque; shades of The Queen Is Dead campery with the lines:
You said to me
"What a noise I make"
"Well I am a singer
I'll never let anyone hypnotise me
I've never been a very good swimmer"
(I actually think it's swinger...or maybe it's deliberately ambiguous).
I wonder what WEA thought of the album, having no doubt spent a fortune signing Associates up after Sulk and then waiting an age for it to be finished. In a way, it's remarkable Perhaps made #23 in the end, as by January 1985 any momentum from the first two singles had long gone.
All Woman is timeless. I squeal with glee whenever it comes on my radio.
Kim Wilde Close. 80's Pop genius! I
It certainly is! And to think Lisa herself actually finds it boring apparently!
My vote for boring goes to In All the Right Places, but that's only because my 13yo self has yet to recover from a brief stint of radio overplay ;)
Work at 7am, George Harrison's 'All Things Must Pass' album soothing the pain...
Ahhh such a good album. Pretty much solid killer with little filler.
Dance pop joy!
Today, it's all about this fine body of work...
I have the most scratched up copy of Marc & The Mamba's "Torment and Toreros", which is probably the ideal way to listen to this beautiful, squalid record.
Marillion's 1991 album Holidays In Eden. This split the fanbase a bit, with its mixture of ultra-commercial singles and lots of "nice" synths, but I always loved it. Steve Hogarth brought a completely new vibe to the band, and this is probably my favourite H-era Marillion record (I know the later stuff gets the critical plaudits, but it's all a bit heavy for me).
