some songs on Foot Of the Mountain were more towards fun synthpop of their earlier years... too bad they decided to stop..

but I am sure they'll reunite and be back again, just like that other great 80's pop band Roxette, you just can't keep good things like that down [:D]

Funny but I've swear they've been on this Farewell thing for quite a long time now. It's like that store down the block that has the going out of business sale and you realize that the sign has been up there for 5 years now. :) Don't get me wrong, I love A-ha and are happy they are still around.

As far as I'm concerned, their last song was 'the soft rains of april' to close out the wonderful 'scoundrel days' album. after that, i found them endlessly dull.

I do not have the full album but the single "Scared Of Heights" which I like very much. It deserves to do much better on the charts than it has done so far here in Germany. His masterpiece, however, still is (and will always be) "A Change Is Gonna Come".
