Editor's note: I don't mean to sound like a naysayer but this record sounds exactly like the sleeve says that it doesn't: as if several parts were recorded separately and patched together. Maybe because it's far-fetched to imagine a finally crafted chorus singing with a synthesizer in front of them and it is! Sorry, great idea, but it doesn't work for me. Sounds way toooo Casio-ish.

Well, despite the casio-like sound on this album, I absolutely love this album, probably in part because I wakled around for years with a cassette of it in my Walkman (if anyone remembers those). Anyway, I've been dying to find a digitized copy of it, so thanks so much for the downloads.
