Album Review

If Japan's Tin Drum album of 1981 sought to redefine the similarities between Oriental melodic structure and Occidental music, then Wang Chung's Points on the Curve pushed the boundaries further toward the mainstream ("Even If You Dream," "Don't Be My Enemy"). It is baffling, then, that such an album should prove a more substantial hit in the States, where "True Love" was memorably adapted as a score to an incestuous rape scene on Miami Vice. Several tracks lend themselves fervently to film; the underlying menace of "Wait" reared its head in To Live and Die in L.A.. Far from the commercial tones of "Dance Hall Days," the song for which they are best known in the U.K., is the dramatic landscape of "Devoted Friends," a stark memo to a companion. Since the album's original release in 1984, it has seen many reissues with as many running orders, and although the sound is a little dated, its craftmanship still holds true.

Customer Reviews

Great Album

The unfortunate thing about Wang Chung is that they will forever be remembered for the horrid "Everybody Have Fun Tonight." Points On A Curve is actually a great album that still holds up today. If you're looking for some good synth-pop/rock that isnt cheesy - this is a solid album to get.

Chungsters review

Points on the Curve -one of the best. Has held up over time. Originally bought on cassette in '83. Recentally added to my Itunes collection. Every song stands on its own. Pop, dance, romance-it has it all. This album & "To Live and Die in LA" Soundtrack by Wang Chung are two of 80's Best. Originally bought " Points on the Curve" for "Don't Let Go" --Every Song is awsome.Wishing WangChung would go on Tour!

A Timeless Classic

20 years have come and gone, and yet Points on the Curve still stands the test of time. The combination of Jack Hues (vocals), Nick Feldman (bass guitar), and Darren Costin (drums) make for one of the best bands of the 1980s. POTC is an excellent collection of pop, dance, and new wave music, with just a hint of rock in it. From the #1 dance hit "Dance Hall Days" all the way through Talk It Out, this is one of the few albums which you just can't stop listening to, over and over and over...
