Gillian seemed to really take to keyboards

Hooky's opinion of her keyboard playing is quite different :mrgreen:

I'm not a big fan of their first album, but I quite like "Dreams Never End". But as a collector of their 80s stuff, surprisingly, I never did buy "Movement", neither on vinyl or CD. I guess I just have to see the CD at a good price :) .

I am a fan of "Ceremony", "Procession" (like this far more than "Everything's Gone Green"), and "Cries and Whispers". I was very happy when I recently found a copy of the "1981-1982" CD for the kingly ransom of $1.00, and it was like new.

What's amazing to me is how this musical unit grows from say 1979 to 1983 rachat de credit immo. To get from the "closer" album to 'blue Monday' in just 3 years is a pretty big aesthetic leap. Would/could they have made it with Curtis is the eternal unanswerable question.

Interesting how early on they keep these dance tracks off the albums..(i.e. Gone green and blue Monday)!

Well, it's proof that artists evolve and do everything to perfect their art.

Movement grew on me. I only thought it was OK at first, but I have higher regard for it now. It helps that I can look up the lyrics online. I never could understand much of what Barney was saying on that particular album.
