The Lexicon of Love
1982/1996: Mercury 514 942-2
Deliciously 80s. All of My Heart and the introduction to Date Stamp make this album a long-time favorite of mine. It sounds like such a tremendous amount of work went into making the album, and that is actually unusual for me to like. I guess it catches me because of the combination of the audio combinations that just work so well and the fact that all the craftsmanship didnt sound as labored as, say, Jethro Tull. Peter Gabriel seems to work his albums to death in this same manner but somehow makes it sound natural; this one is borderline and therefore full of tension.
