Somewhere in between New Wave and Post Punk.... A couple good songs, but a number of songs make me want to chew broken glass and throw myself down a flight of stairs.

Tea-and-algae-stained British indie-pop from the 80s at its finest.

This is the only Aztec Camera album I own and it's a good one. Standout tracks are Oblivious and Lost Outside The Tunnel.

What a beautiful time to be 15 and still wonderful to hear this album again. Maybe we all still underrate it. Yes, The Smtihs captured the feelings of more teenagers, but they never reached this beauty, clear like a scottish stream. "We could send letters" may contain the most beautiful words from a teenager since Francoise Sagans "Bonjour tristesse", if not since Rimbauds poetry.
