One group more than any other managed to successfully combine yearning, lovelorn, romantic content within a futuristic, ‘European’, supposedly ‘cold’ form however and that was Liverpool’s Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. Critics hold varying opinions on different stages of their career but OMD always made pop music of one kind or another. Look behind the austere design and photography (and the forbidding title) of Architecture & Morality and you will find a collection of three and a half minute long nuggets of pop gold. (Well, almost. The hypnotic, ambient wash of ‘Sealand’ written about the oil refinery on the banks of the Mersey, unfolds at a much slower, Eno-inspired pace.) It was no coincidence that John Hughes would go on to ask them to contribute to the Pretty In Pink soundtrack after hearing the album.

This long overdue reissue is presented as part of Universal Music’s “Abbey Road Half Speed Masters” series, offering the definitive pressing of the album!
