If you know "new romantic" synthpop music, you know Visage, and how depressingly underappreciated they are and were. If you don't know them and are interested in the genre, however, I HIGHLY suggest you try them out, and this album works great as a starting point.

They sound a lot like Pet Shop Boys and Duran Duran, as per the genre formula, but they have their own style/sound that sets them apart. Check 'em out!

Bought from Amoeba Music.
