Their last album was their best effort in many years, highly recommended.

I remember in 1991 when I first heard "See The Lights" on the radio and thinking it was the new U2 song.

They were bloody marvellous, up till about 1985, when Jim Kerr decided to go for world domination...
Sons and Fascination/Sisters Feeling Call, New Gold Dream, Empires and Dance, Sparkle in the Rain - all essential albums.

Yeah that's exactly what I mean. I don't rate the mid 80's stuff onwards AT ALL.

Nor me, except for the last one, give it a listen, I think you'd be pleasantly surprised.

They were one of the most sonically creative and adventurous bands up until 1984's SPARKLE IN THE RAIN.
