SiIеnt
This album brings back memories of driving around in my friend's Cutlass Supreme in 79'. It is probably Bob Geldof's shining moment in the sun musically. We all know what he went on to do on the humanitarian front. 'I Don't Like Mondays' (the hit on the record) is hardly the high point of this tightly written 80's alterno-pop affair. The ascerbic wit of 'Diamond Smiles' and the eeriness of 'Wind Chill Factor Minus Zero' and the paranoia of 'Someone's Looking At You' stand out in this post-punk celebration of the good, the bad and the frightening. Though the music sounds dated the arrangements and creativity display the musical talents of The Rats and producers Phil Wainman and Robert John Lange. Apparently the Fine Art Of Surfacing is a reference to masturbation... but don't be fooled this is not some arty self-indulgence but more clearly is an astutely crafted pop gem.
