Album Review

Liverpool's A Flock of Seagulls are best remembered for lead singer Mike Score's hair (and their number ten hit "I Ran [So Far Away]"). The quartet actually scored three lesser hits aside from that archetypal '80s smash. The kinetic "A Space Age Love Song"; the cascading, multi-layered "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)"; and the sweeping "The More You Live, the More You Love" are also included here. The set is fleshed out with non-hits and album cuts that most listeners will find pleasant but unessential (although the neurotic "Nightmares" is quite fun). It's an interesting curio from synth-rock's heyday and all the Flock of Seagulls that anyone aside from ardent fans or '80s junkies needs.

Customer Reviews

i ran is awesome

The flock of seagulls are awesome and you can't go wrong when you buy i ran, it's great. i listen to it all the time.

I Ran

0I'm really surprised there are so few comments here, especially seeing as "I Ran" was in "Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80's." But, A Flock of Seagulls is an amazing band. I was introduced when I was young (Sadly, I'm too young to have been around when they started), and I still love them. Definitly a must have album

A Classic '80s Icon!

One of the best early '80s bands. Get the whole album and check out the other AFOS albums as well- But beware of the Re-Recorded albums- You'll get burned if you are not careful. But this particular album will not disappoint you. 5 stars especially tracks: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12. The extended versions are excellent including the full length album version of "I Ran So Far Away" and the 12" versions of 11 and 12.

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

As well-known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as their hit single "I Ran (So Far Away)," A Flock of Seagulls were one of the infamous one-hit wonders of the new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new romantic movement, A Flock of Seagulls were a little too robotic and arrived a little too late to be true new romantics, but their sleek dance-pop was forever indebted to the short-lived movement. The group benefitted considerably from MTV's heavy rotation of the...
