Ian Paice's skin and stick work was great on this offering...especially as the world at the time was obsessed with a skinny guy with flowers hanging out his ass shouting 'Meat Is Murder'.

This band quickly grew from pop pap to grown up music:

Talk Talk - Talk Talk.

Talk Talk - Living In Another World.

The zenith for me...

As a 'serious' rock dude I am not a big lover of 80s 'pop' music but 2 songs that I do like from 1985 are-

1. Phil Collins & Phil Bailey- Easy Lover

2. Tears For Fears- Everybody Wants To Rule The World
