I don’t really know what to say about this album. It has its moments – mainly the scratchy guitar riff and sheer oomph of Money For Nothing – but the rest of the songs are just bland background music, easy listening slush for ‘80s yuppies.
I think I find the album cover the most offensive though – a beautiful guitar, suspended in the air, framed by a sky blue border and a horrific pastel-pink trim. The tasteless presentation takes the beauty out of the guitar and leaves nothing but nausea for the listener.
Hit: Money For Nothing
Hidden Gem: Brothers In Arms
