“Empires And Dance” by Simple Minds - album review

TJR says

With “Empires and Dance”, the adaptable and experimental Glasgow quintet positioned themselves as the darkest, toughest new romantics on the block. Whether high-octane dance or mid-tempo mood-grooves, the sense of cool was omnipresent. The opening 1-2-3 – “I Travel”, “Today I Died Again” and “Celebrate” – was exceptional and, whilst there’s hardly a dud in the set, “Thirty Frames A Second” was particularly excellent on side two.
