Album Review

Frankie Goes to Hollywood's first double album was a huge hit. Their second offering also met with some success, although it is not as well remembered. And yet, on many accounts, Liverpool can be considered as an improvement over its predecessor. For one thing, the album is shorter, more conventional. While Welcome to the Pleasuredome had some strong material, the length weakened the whole in many places. Here, the band focused on eight tracks and the result is somewhat more convincing. "Warriors of the Wasteland," "Rage Hard," and "Watching the Wildlife" were all minor hits back in 1986, and the other tracks are, for the most part, of the same quality, with perhaps "For Heaven's Sake" standing out as a favorite. Again, Trevor Horn was involved in the production (the band was signed to his famous Zang Tuum Tumb label, so it's no big surprise) — thus the production is impeccable, as one would expect from a Horn-produced album. Worth a listen if you like the band or have an interest for '80s music — of which this is not such a bad sample. ~ Alex S. Garcia, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Better than you might remember

The Pleasuredome took all of the credit when in reality it was a collection of a few good songs padded out to a double album. Liverpool is more consise and more thoughtful. Of course it has the bombastic Frankie stamp upon it, however tracks such as For Heavens sake and Is anybody out there show a softer side to the band. The original album was 8 songs and the album really should only be judged on the first 8 tracks. The rest of this re-issue consists of a few interesting mixes and a couple of unwise B sides which are there for the collector only. As good as they are, the main album tends to get swallowed up. By all means listen to the full deluxe re-issue, but focus on the original running order, you may well be surprised on how good Liverpool is.

Pardon????

Roadhouse Blues???? I didn't expect that! It's OK. There have been worse versions (Creed anyone?). I had this album on vinyl when it had only 9 or 10 tracks and thought it was much better than the multi-platinum selling Welcome To The Pleasure Dome. Alas, no one else did and that was that for dear old Frankie.

Fantastic Frankie!!!

What a great and very underrated album. Excellent reissue with some collectable bonuses. ZTT are very clever with what they put on Frankie reissues as they have now put nearly all tracks/versions over several cd's.I was hoping to get the 2nd released original 12inch version of Watching The Wildlife on this deluxe cd. Oh well roll on the next Frankie reissue.

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Liverpool, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '00s

On the back of an enormous publicity campaign, Frankie Goes to Hollywood dominated British music in 1984. Frankie's dance-pop borrowed heavily from the then-current Hi-NRG movement, adding a slick pop sensibility and production. What really distinguished the group was not their music, but their marketing campaign. With a series of slogans, T-shirts, and homoerotic videos, the band caused enormous controversy in England and managed to create some sensations in the United States. However, the...
