Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Organisation Organisation
Pop Used - LP DID 6 Dindisc
1980 Original. Appears Unplayed. “If OMD's Debut Album Showed The Band Could Succeed Just As Well On Full-Length Efforts As Singles, Organisation Upped The Ante Even Further, Situating The Band In The Enviable Position Of At Once Being Creative Innovators And Radio-Friendly Pop Giants. That Was Shown As Much By The Astounding Lead Track And Sole Single From The Album, "Enola Gay." Not Merely A Great Showcase For New Member Holmes, Whose Live-Wire Drumming Took The Core Electronic Beat As A Launching Point And Easily Outdid It, "Enola Gay" Is A Flat-Out Pop Classic — Clever, Heartfelt, Thrilling, And Confident, Not To Mention Catchy And Arranged Brilliantly. The Outrageous Use Of The Atomic Bomb Scenario — Especially Striking Given The Era's Nuclear War Fears — Informs The Seemingly Giddy Song With A Cut-To-The-Quick Fear And Melancholy, And The Result Is Captivating. Far From Being A One-Hit Wonder, Though, Organisation Is Packed With A Number Of Gems, Showing The Band's Reach And Ability Continuing To Increase. Holmes Slots Into The Band's Efforts Perfectly, Steering Away From Straightforward Time Structures While Never Losing The Core Dance Drive, Able To Play Both Powerfully And Subtly. Mccluskey's Singing, His Own Brand Of Sweetly Wounded Soul For A Different Age And Approach, Is Simply Wonderful — The Clattering Industrial Paranoia Of "The Misunderstanding" Results In Wrenching Wails, A Moody Cover Of "The More I See You" Results In A Deeper-Voiced Passion. Everything From The Winsome Claustrophobia Of "Vcl Xi" And The Gentle, Cool Flow On "Statues" To The Quirky Boulevardier Swing Of "Motion And Heart" Has A Part To Play. Meanwhile, Album Closer "Stanlow," Inspired By The Power Plant Where Mccluskey's Father Worked, Concluded Things On A Haunting Note, Murky Mechanical Beats And A Slow, Mournful Melody Leading The Beautiful Way.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Architecture & Morality Architecture & Morality
Pop Used - LP ARE 37721 Epic
1981 Original With 1D/1D Columbia New York Stampers. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “If There Was A Clear High Point For OMD In Terms Of Balancing Relentless Experimentation And Seemingly Unstoppable Mainstream Success In The U.K., Architecture & Morality Is It. Again Combining Everything From Design And Presentation To Even The Title Into An Overall Artistic Effort, This Album Showed That OMD Was Arguably The First Liverpool Band Since The Later Beatles To Make Such A Sweeping, All-Bases-Covered Achievement -- More So Because OMD Owed Nothing To The Fab Four. All It Takes Is A Consideration Of The Three Smash Singles From The Album To See The Group In Full Flower. "Souvenir," Featuring Paul Humphreys In A Quiet But Still Warm And Beautiful Lead Role, Eases In On Haunting Semi-Vocal Sighs Before Settling Into Its Gentle, Sparkling Melody. The Mid-Song Instrumental Break, With Its Shifted Tempos And Further Wordless Calls, Is Especially Inspired. "Joan Of Arc," Meanwhile, Takes The Drama Of "Enola Gay" To New Heights; Again, Wordless Vocals Provide The Intro And Backing, While An Initially Quiet Melody Develops Into A Towering Heartbreaker, With Andy McCluskey And Band In Full Flight. If That Wasn't Enough, The Scenario Was Continued And Made Even More Epic With "Maid Of Orleans," Starting With A Quick-Cut Series Of Melancholic Drones And Shades Before A Punchy, Then Rolling Martial Beat Kicks In, With Malcolm Holmes And Technology In Perfect Combination. With Another Bravura McCluskey Lead And A Mock-Bagpipe Lead That's Easily More Entrancing Than The Real Thing, It's A Wrenching Ballad Like No Other Before It And Little Since. Any Number Of Other High Points Can Be Named, Such As The Opening, "The New Stone Age," With McCluskey's Emotional Fear Palpable Over A Rough Combination Of Nervous Electronic Pulses, Piercing Keyboard Parts, And Slightly Distorted Guitar. "She's Leaving" Achieves Its Own Polished Pop Perfection -- It Would Have Made An Inspired Choice For A Fourth Single If One Had Been Forthcoming -- While The Heartbreaking "Sealand" And "Georgia" Hint At Where OMD Would Go Next, With Dazzle Ships.” Ned Raggett, AMG.... more details
