Sonatine Posted December 27, 2022 Share Posted December 27, 2022 I recall quite vividly actually buying the t-shirt before buying the album not least because I was impressed by the font! As for the album - well actually it was one of the first CDs I bought back in the 1982/3 rather than opting for the LP. On first playing I was quite shocked at the sudden shift in its musical anthem choosing to move towards more mainstream contemporary sounds that most other bands were experimenting with back in the early 80s. As a consequence I found the album rather find much love for to begin with, along with some soulless digital output from the CD itself. (I still don't rate CDs above LPs when it comes to the audio experience, especially through headphones). But like most things, time is a great healer, and by the end of the 80s I began to warm to Signals (especially "Losing It", "The Weapon" and "Subdivisions"); GuP and PW - all of which placed heavy emphasis on synthesisers & keyboards at the expense of traditional instruments. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
