A slice of heaven...

My appreciation for Heaven 17 increased as I grew older. I heard "Hands Up To Heaven" on the Electricity 2 CD a couple of years ago and was blown away. This album does just as well -- I love the cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear The Reaper". They keep fairly faithfully to the original but still stamp their Heaven 17 trademark vox all over it... actually pretty decent '80's comeback!

Still makes me wonder what would have happened if these guys had never left Human League. And Glenn hasn't sounded better. Said tracks are highly recommended!
