“Kilimanjaro” by The Teardrop Explodes - album review

TJR says

Finding balance between a woozy 60s swirl and a sharp new wave punch, the debut from Liverpool’s Teardrop Explodes was a fine example of the never-ending conduits essential to musical evolutions. Their single-selecting process chimed well with my taste buds, with my four favourite tracks being the four singles released before the album, namely: “Sleeping Gas” (February ’79), “Bouncing Babies” (June ’79), “Treason (It’s Just A Story)” (February ’80) and “When I Dream” (September ’80).
