Some good tracks mainly the hits the filler stuff is rubbish sorry, I was a big fan as a child though from the u.k. the videos and Top of the Pops performances were great.

This album was a massive hit in the UK and one of my first post-punk albums. It got zero air play in metro Detroit where I grew up and I fail to remember it on MTV during the day. Give it a spin as most US based people only know a couple of hits when he was Adam Ant. This is his best album

A classic pop album, this is the first record I ever bought. Kings of the wild frontier, sounded and still sounds like nothing else. A fusion of punk,tribal sounds,glam rock, and,camp, Adam and his ants produce a bonkers LP which is still a lot of fun today. The hit singles, dog eat dog, antmusic, and, the title track are all excellent, as are, ants invasion, killer in the home, and, the human beings. A silly and enjoyable record. Good stuff.

I have the other uk version of this upbeat album at the forefront of new wave (incl. "making history" [65]). Reminds me of Bowie around this time.

One of the first albums I owned and loved at the time. Not an album I feel the need to pick up and listen to now, unfortunately, although still enjoyable it's not even my favourite Ants album any longer.

Great album! Strangely enough when I hear this I get elements of pirate songs, American Indian chants over an English sensibility.
