A pretty solid album, I especially love the instrumental in the middle. Also a great album to sing along to-one of my favorites to do so. The bass in this album is fantastic.

This is another album that highlights the Eurocentric frame of reference of the editor of the 1,001 Albums list. It's OK, I guess, but its importance is totally lost on me.

Although I have this on CD and Vinyl it is always the vinyl copy which gets the spin. The depth of sound and vocals on New Gold Dream are superb. Other favourites are Glittering Prize and Someone Somewhere in Summertime. Best Simple Minds album from the eighties however it is a close call between this and the more up to date sound of Big Music imo.

Probably Simple minds greatest album, although not my personal favourite of theirs. Still, a very good album and like, Sparkle in the rain, and, Once upon a time, underrated.

My first and favorite simple Minds album. Every song takes me to a place. Layered with synth and guitar and great songs.
