    Парень в очках кого-то напоминает, а кого не пойму. | "I Ran (So Far Away)" конечно же. Сразу ностальгия по Gta Vice City на "Волне103". Из-за этого и послушал их.

    Yeap. 2nd album is rediculous, if is it was as 1st or better this band might be more popular, than Depeeche mode or something similar.

    That's exactly the same problem I'm having. As much as I love A Flock Of Seagulls, they certainly didn't do The Royal We EP.
