untutored child of nature ,

Biased, I admit,

I wish men would liberate their inner dandy as Adam did. Put the brocade waistcoats back on, tie the hair in a velvet bow, leap and prance. His music is such a celebration of unabashed manhood at the peak of its complicated energy. He exoticized himself and his Romany gypsy background, but at the same time, honored it. Check out the mature Adam on "Wonderful." He still has that timeless quality, but broadened and deepened, the way life does for survivors.

Stuart Goddard is still awesome!!!

I remember holding this album, the REAL thing, a RECORD ...Vinyl...I miss it...I had my first cheap little record player and played this one, Prince Charming and other popular early 80s over & over...I remember Goody Two Shoes making the charts as well. This is quintescential early 80s new wave ...all these kids today are all retro 80s, well, most of them don't have a CLUE to what REAL good 80s tunes were...I hope they catch on the Adam Ant (and the ants!)....yes, his real name is Stuart. My friend had a crush on him! Stephanie Yaede, if yer out there....HEY!

His best.

This record is excellent; AA deserves much more credit than he gets. He's at the top of his game here, mature and dealing with being (for a moment, anyway) a worldwide star. And I agree - side 2 is great; the super-catchy "Made of Money" is surprisingly frank. AA always overreached a bit, and that shows on a few of the songs, but you can't say he didn't try. Also check out B-Side Babies - Beat My Guest is one of the best songs from that era.
