Reviews & Opinions

FLEX! PUNK, HARDCORE AND POWERPOP 1975-1985 A-M: 'Ephemeral Living' is art wave with a piano and a synth, but also a more aggressive punk edge. 'Animals' is a bit closer to B-52's style new wave, but there are still traces of a DIY/punk sound. 'Mr. Moto' is a funny new wave version of the classic surf instrumental. 'Bloody Yellow' is pure synth-pop/industrial synth. No great, but mildly interesting if you're into the DIY side of new wave.

Additional Notes

'Animals Part III ' listed as 'Animals Part 3' on inside of gatefold sleeve.
