I was really surprised when I listened to this album the very first time in the cold winter of 1985. The popular hits "Take On Me" and "The Sun Always Shines" are pop gold while the rest of the album sounds much more melancholic. But there's not a single bad song on the album and it creates a really great balance between fun and melancholy with interesting instrumentation and good vocals.

One of the best synth pop/rock albums of all time. This sits at the top of my synth pop/rock tree with Alphaville 'Forever Young' and Thomson Twins 'The Gap'. The music here as with the other two albums is much more than pop. You only have to listen to the instrumentation to hear this. As an added bonus I have a mint copy on clear vinyl!

Take on me, and, The sun always shines on TV', are two great eighties pop singles, and although the rest are not quite in the same class as those two, there are some good songs here. The title track and, Train of thought, are the strongest of the other tracks. A good, albeit not great pop album.

One of the best Synthpop albums. Take On Me is a great song but it has been played to death. Train Of Thought, Hunting High and Low, The Sun Always Shines On TV and Love Is Reason are my favorites

some strong (and commercially successful) songs here, but also quite a handful of uninspired fillers.

This album is truly amazing, it is hard to choose a favourite a-ha album but this has some of my favourite tracks of all time. Train of thought is stunning song..
