Excellent band, this album is dark and it soothes the soul. Easily one of the coolest bands of the 80s.

With a little influence of Kraftwerk, an artistically refined work... which achieve the amazing feat for a "synthpop progressive" album to be listened without being annoyed ! Best OMD's LP and best OMD's track (Joan of Arc).

Architecture and morality, OMD's second album, is by far their best. It's a stunning electro pop record that still sounds absolutely fantastic today. The beautiful, souvenir, and, Joan of arc, are the most famous and accessible tracks, but there is a lot more interesting and challenging music to be found here. Opener, the new stone age, is excellent, as is, she's leaving, a superb track. Sealand, is another strong cut, and the album comes to a close with, the beginning and the end. One of the best albums from the early eighties, and my favourite album of 1981.

OMD's greatest album albeit supported by Organisation and Crush, this was little more varied and contained the superb single Joan Of Arc.
