Cutting Crew - Broadcast (1992) Retail CD
I stumbled onto Broadcast at a used records store and decided to give it a whirl. It turned out to be a surprisingly awesome album. I'm used to some 80s new wave bands lacking depth on their albums beside their standout single - while When in Rome has some nice songs on their album, "The Promise" clearly stands alone.
Cutting Crew has a hard-hitting album, that confidently places the power single - "(I Just) Died in Your Arms" in the sixth slot. In between the beginning and the song we all knew beforehand are a pack of remarkably good songs. The first four are particularly effective - themore… energy of "Any Colour" carries over brilliantly into the passionate "One For the Mockingbird". "I've Been in Love Before" makes a smooth, total transition into emotional territory before the dramatic heights of "Life in a Dangerous Time" (a song written about 15 years too early).
By the time we come to "(I Just) Died in Your Arms", the power single isn't needed to convince us of the talent and vision of Cutting Crew - it only confirms what we already know.
Other strong songs on the album include the deceptively sedate "Sahara" and "It Shouldn't Take Too Long." The title track sounds curiously similar to the music of Howard Jones.
The above seven are, I think, the strongest songs on the album, but Cutting Crew makes no real mistakes with any of their songs. This is a remarkably packed album, and an essential addition to the collection of any 80s fan.
As an aside, I should caution people not to put any stock in reviews that rip on Cutting Crew's main single and the album as a whole, without mentioning anything about the other songs. Transparent reviews like that clearly illustrate the reviewer's failure to listen to the album. Sad, but true.
