Not exactly a must-have 80s British album for me, but it has its appeal.

A brilliant and energetic record. Kilimanjaro, is yet another of those great British albums of the late seventies/early eighties. Some fine songs in, sleeping gas, treason, and, when I dream. The CD adds the Japanese mini-album version featuring the absolutely brilliant, reward, surely the teardrops greatest ever song. Still, sounds great today.

This was one of the first albums that I bought when I was a kid. Still holds up well today, a magnificent album!

Great debut that puts the psychotic into psychedelia (in a early 80s style of course).
