Due to Trevor Horn's lush production, this is one of the finest albums of the 1980's.

New Romantic was almost over. Martin Fry used to say that he never was "a Blitz kid" but that he wanted this album to be seen as influenced by Punk. Which I can understand quite well, Punk was so over in 1982, but this was the new way to say "No!" though it sounded like a "Yes!". The lyrics of "Date stamp" still bring me to tears. Love in the age of shopping. One of the masterpieces of the great Pop year 1982.

A classic early eighties pop album. If you want to know what popular music was like in 1982, this is the LP to listen to. Obviously heavily influenced by David Bowie's 'plastic soul' record, young Americans, Lexicon of love, is super slick and smooth, in a good way, and it's also a microcosm of the eighties, in which it's all about show and less about heart and soul. The music captures that brilliantly, a kind of superficial presentation on love and life, but still with a sense of yearning. It includes classic pop singles in, poison arrow, and, the look of love, which are perfect examples of beautiful pop.

I can see why you might not like it...you need a love of camp and eccentric to dig this. But if you do, it's a riot. One of the funnest 80s synth-pop records and tight as all get out.

Superb New Romantic classic that manages to embody everything that is truly great about Brit-pop.

Maybe the essence of the first half of the decade which meant: Farewell to Rock. (Needless to say, Rock came back, for good and for worse.)
