An excellent album through and through. The influence of Trevor Horn is very evident on many tracks. Getting a single banned by Radio 1 at the time was a clever tactic and spearheaded the band into strardom. As much I like the classic hits, I equally love the slower less known tracks like 'Including the Ballad of 32' and 'The Only Star In Heaven'.

A little over the top at times, but definitely more interesting and with more of other people's material than I would have anticipated.

Another of my early 80's favourites which I think doesn't sound dated even now. I was lucky enough to see them in concert but they were sadly shortlived. I had a bit of a ZTT thing, bought first albums by FGTH, Art of Noise and Prpoaganda and they all get played still. Personally I like the second half - the little snippets don't bother me either. Like it still.....

A terrific first album that showed all kinds of promise. Sadly, it wasn't to be as the band could only manage one follow up album before internal friction caused them to go their own ways.

The first disc was a powerful piece of work for its era. I'm not a fan of overt sexuality for its own sake, but the song "Relax" pushed the envelope in a big way for a such a radio-friendly single. It and the other big single, "Two Tribes" were both frenetic masterpieces of musical craft. The title track, clocking in at over 13 minutes is a delicious stew of song fragments that never once loses the plot. The second disc is, well, interesting. Starting out with a string of covers before Frankie originals again take the stage. The energy isn't quite where it was on the first disc but there's nothing wrong with what's here. Finally, comes "The Power of Love", a straight-forward love song which went #1 in the UK but remains sadly unknown in the U.S.

a truly revolutionary record in the 80s. the so called singles were all absolutely unsuitable for radio stations: to long, to suggestive, to weird. but all the "singles" kicked ass. sadly there are indeed some fillers here. otherwise ...

Singles are amazing and the "fillers" have lots to offer too.

Great singles but there are too many fillers here for the album to be a bona fide classic.
