This is an album/CD I can still listen to in 2019 and still enjoy from start to finish. Favourites are track 3,7 & 10.

For me there isn't a lot to choose between this album and Hunting High and Low. Both are excellent but quite different albums, I would say this one has a slightly harder less pop edge to it. 'Cry Wolf' and 'Manhatten Skyline' are my top tracks.

A very typical 80s pop album, I don't hear any identity in this music.

Easily their best album, includes the best song they ever did (Manhattan Skylines) and 8 other great tracks. The only flaw is the boring Maybe Maybe, which is what people who don't like A-ha think A-ha are like, unintelligent pop fluff.

Seem to remember this being good and their best. Not heard it in many a year only the stuff on greatest hits which I have on cd. Have this on vinyl must did it out! They are looked on as a.joke band by the cool police who cite the overrated prefab sprout as an 80s highlight and laugh when you mention aha. Btw check john peels online record collection and you will find this amongst the obscurities. Vindication!

It's rather not the best a-ha album. The best track; Manhattan Skyline others are under average

The thing about this album is that it was a shock for the people who were expecting a cheerful boyband easy listening experience.
Instead what they got was a dark, melodic, demanding collection of songs. It is one of the best examples of the 80s pop scene, exploring the boundries of experimentation...

Quite simply stunning. Seriously underrated. a-ha: The Beatles of the 80's.
