proof that the 80's had the best music
in the 80's music and pop culture were so much better than today. it was high class, artistic, and very relevant and innovative. the 90's went a bit sideways with the grunge movement, but it really went bad when mainstream culture turned to rap as the standard for pop culture in the mid 90's through today. english electric is proof of what could've been if the mindset of the 80's hadn't been discarded, and is a brilliant reminder of the glory days of bands like Pet Shop Boys, New Order, DM, The Cure, and of course OMD. I see a huge connection between the direction music has gone and the direction the youth have gone in 2013. Listen to this album and think about what used to be the prevalent pop culture, with English Electric you'd swear it never faded.
Best of all
OMD have always been like 2 different bands. An OMD fan seems to either be in the "If You Leave" camp, or Dazzle Ships. This one settles it. Andy and Paul have merged all of the best from past OMD recordings and created something special. As a fan going all the way back to A&M, I have to say that this is by far their best work.
Best since Architecture & Morality
They've done it! They've fully recaptured who they were back in 1981 and made their most consistent and sonically beautiful album since A&M. Pure brilliance!
