This album popped up because on Huey Lewis’ radio show, he claimed that Simple Minds were a one-hit wonder. Mr C found this quite offensive and then we realised I hadn’t done any of their albums! So, here we go!
Woohoo, the 80s! It’s very firmly 80s in a good way, all the synths and sounds that make that decade what it is. I really enjoyed the album and actively want to listen to more from their back catalogue. Definitely not one-hit wonders!
