Crítica do álbum

Known as the "lost album," Worth is the ill-fated second release by the New Jersey-based synth-pop group Anything Box. Its 1990 debut album Peace, released on Sony, was a respectable seller and included two substantial club hits, "Jubilation" and "Living in Oblivion." Anything Box (lead singer Claude S. and Dania Morales) traveled to Germany with producer Gareth Jones (Erasure, Depeche Mode) in early 1991 to record the follow up, Worth. But by this time, Anything Box was involved in a contract dispute with its label; after a bitter legal battle, the band was allowed to leave Sony, but only if Worth was shelved. The band eventually was able to realease the album themselves in 2001. Worth rivals Depeche Mode's Black Celebration as one of the most beautifully dark synth-pop albums ever made.

The act signed with Epic and released their debut album, Peace, in 1990, notching a hit with the upbeat "Living in Oblivion." The song crossed over from clubs and managed to climb onto the pop charts (reaching a less-than-dizzying number 65). They returned a year later with the Gareth Jones-produced Worth.
