This one brings on the feeling of travel, of blue morning skies when it's not warm enough yet, green trees. Or busy life, moving from one uncontrolled situation to another, but still managing to into things that keep you sane. The mood is desperate, menacing, but holds onto believing it will all turn out right. Dancing even when most things are against you. Dark blue and green.
Particular favorites for me, besides "Ashes To Ashes" and "Fashion" include the title track and "Up The Hill Backwards". But pretty much all songs are as strong as these.
This record is oddly comforting, even when the songs are very dark. You can clearly see where some new romantics got their inspiration from. :)
