One year after her first album, Kim Wilde put out her second and it was a bit of a change in sound from the predecessor. This one was more electronic, but still retained the high energy and edge that was present on her first album.
Starting off with “Ego,” a fast-paced song that will get you up and dancing, it flows perfectly into “Words Fell Down,” another fast song with great synthesizer playing adding a very atmospheric feel to the song. This album could really fit in with the emerging new romantic sound at the time, lots of dancey synths, tons of bass and a general feel that the album would sound incredible in the club. The single “View From A Bridge” is every bit as exciting to hear now as it was when it first came out. “Action City,” “Chaos At The Airport,” “Can You Come Over,” and the other single “Cambodia” are all standouts on this album.
With remastered sound giving clarity and dynamics to the music, and the replica vinyl jacket all add to this great release that gives her one-two punch that started a career that is still going to this day. Great music that still stands up in this day and age, you can’t go wrong.
