    The ballsiest OMD album ever!

    I just don't get how people could get behind the group's previous three albums, and then, suddenly, not this one. It's really not all that different to me. "Junk Culture" is where they really started switching gears...

    The 2008 remaster is great, You get some awesome promo shots of the band in their neo-Kraftwerk anti-pop star garb, alongside some nicely informative liner notes. Bonus tracks include "4-Neu", which is always a good thing.

    The Kid A of 1983. Indecipherable to the hacks of the time but what did they know?

    I don't think there's anything I don't like about this album.

    Just found this album again on vinyl in my house. I don't know why people slate this album, imo it is one of the best they ever did. Most people who slate it just wanted another Organisation or A&M, which I'm glad they didn't do.

    Silent Running should have been a Top 10 single - didn't even get a release strangely. At the time I thought OMD were rather brave to even present this remarkably fresh album to Virgin's execs, let alone get it released. I rarely listen to individual tracks from it, always the whole album as a lump.......the reissue is even better....

    An elegy for human sounds lost among the mechanical clamor of the modern world. It's a sort of update of Kraftwerk's Radio-Activity--pop songcraft colliding with radio transmissions, telegraph messages, processed voices, and any number of beeps, boops, and blips. But where Kraftwerk are happy to be ghosts in the machine (their robotic voices are the human swallowed up by the mechanical), OMD are, at best, conflicted (they refuse to lose their recognizably human voices). This leaves them open to a charge of biting the hand that feeds them: Why, after all, is a group so heavily indebted to technology worrying about its dehumanizing effects? Such questions betray a fundamental misunderstanding, however: Which other groups are going to be concerned with such issues? A folk group will not be releasing the great pop-music rumination on man and his relationship to technology--of that you can be sure. You need to know Frankenstein's monster before you can decry its influence.

    i'd hardly call it a complete comparison, its comparitive on the basis, because they both commited "commercial suicide" - I dont listen to Radiohead these days, yes they are boring.

    Experiment wonderness is the best way to describe this, probably their best album, just above Architecture & Morality I think. I really do need the new remaster of this...

    Excellent fourth album. They jumped the shark with Junk Culture and the later albums.
