    I thought Footprints was utter pish at the time but I find it a welcome break now

    I mean, you need to be grounded for what hits you next :horny:

    Dear Miami is completely fabulous on every label. It's a club hostess with hoops in her ears, curles in her hair and men under her spell serving Moet, cocaine and other tapas, on rollerskates, at a party of beautiful people wearing white.

    Strictly... rolling... VIP :disco:

    Cry Baby is good, but not my favourite uptempo on this album. It is a bit of a POP EMERGENCY and the energy does ELEVATE quite a bit from the middle 8 onwards. Love the sounds of space aliens playing ping pong or shooting ray guns in the background.

    the trivia and anecdotes she shared during the recent Twitter listen party were unreal. I would kill for almost any of my other faves to go in detail on or show respect for their past music like this.

    Yeah not hitting it for me either. Sublime voice though. And I never found the vox on Moloko that pleasant (I only know Sing It Back and The Time Is Now mind)

    Scarlet Ribbons is just so completely lovely.

    Her habit of referring to herself in the third person by her surname is... iconic!

    I'm on the last track. This is much more akin to the first few. Not quite as strong.

    This has been a very enjoyable listen! I will delve further for sure.

    And this is where Jark reveals he hasn't even listened to the bonus tracks on the album let alone b-sides.

    Make sure you listen to 'Off & ON' from this era (yes SEB covered it but Roisin's original is so much better)

    @Tisch and @Iguana - you should also check out her current single Murphy's Law, which is a total disco moment a la Let You Know

    The bassline of Parallel Lives is so SHIMMERY, HYPNOTIC and GROOVY. It absolutely owns the song.

    A really very good album indeed. It's right up there in the higher echelons of that decade for me.
