Pop Used - LP 80186 Atlantic
1984 Original In Shrink Wrap With Custom Inner Sleeve. Includes The Hit: "Big In Japan." Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “Alphaville's 1984 Debut, Forever Young, Deserves To Be Viewed As A Classic Synth Pop Album. There's No Doubting That Germans Are Behind The Crystalline Teutonic Textures And Massive Beats That Permeate The Album, But Vocalist Marian Gold's Impressive Ability To Handle A Bryan Ferry Croon And Many Impassioned High Passages Meant The Album Would Have Worldwide Appeal. Indeed Both "Big In Japan" And The Touching, Sad Change-Of-Pace "Forever Young" Raced Up The Charts In Multiple Continents. Borrowing Inspiration From Roxy Music's Detached Theatricality And Kraftwerk's Beats And Rhythms, Gold And Company Hit Upon A Magic Formula That Produced Here An Album's Worth Of Impossibly Catchy Tunes That Could Almost Serve As Pure Definitions For The Synth Pop Genre. The Hits Race Straight For One's Cranium And Embed Themselves Upon Impact. "Big In Japan" Feels Like A More Serious Cousin To Murray Head's "One Night In Bangkok," As A Slow-Pounding Beat Spars With Gold's Desperate Voice. "Forever Young," A Stark, Epic Song That Would Become Essential For Every Post-1984 High School Graduation, Drips Sadness And Never Fails To Cause A Listener To Nostalgically Reflect On Life And Loss. Forever Young Is A Technically Perfect And Emotionally Compelling Slice Of 1980s Electronic Pop/Rock Music. It's Also A Wonderfully Fun Ride From Start To Finish.” Tim DiGravina, AMG.... more details
