REVIEWS
Average points: 4.29 (Reviews: 56)
*****
Change war der zweiter Single in Holland in 1982, und war nie so Gut als "Pale shelter". Von das Debut Album "The hurting".

Thomas, stimmer Dir wieder voll und ganz zu
****
Die guten Bewertungen überraschen mich doch etwas. Ein netter Song, aber bei weitem nicht so gut, wie die Dinger, die sie dann später, z.B. auf "Songs from the Big Chair" machten. Eine abgerundete 4.
****
...gut...
***
immer wieder hörbar
*****
sehr gut
****
Der erste Minihit auch in den USA, # 73 im Sommer 1983. Eher was für die 80s Freaks.

# 4 in den britischen Charts, kam nach "Mad World".
*****
▒ Deze prima plaat en inmiddels klassieker van het Engelse duo "Roland Orzabal & Curt Smith" uit september 1982 wist in het voorjaar van 1983 helaas nooit de NL Top 40 te bereiken ??? Toch ga en blijf ik voor de 5 sterren !!! (NL Tip 30: 7 wk / # 4) ☺!!!

@21-03-2013: Ja, ja nu eindelijk in het Nederlands ☺!!!

Stark! Xylophon hört man nicht oft in Popsongs. Originell, passt.
*****
gut
******
Super!
******
J'adore! Premier succès de ce duo new-wave si emblématique. Evidemment un énorme 6 et une mention particulière à la version maxi 45T.
*****
yeah! 5-6
***
nichts spezielles gewesen...
***
Seh und hör ich ebenso..

Ist übrigens meine B-Side zur "Mad world" Single, was hier in der DB nicht so ist.

Wow, wie toll. Mal was ganz Neues von den zwei Dumpfbacken.. noch nie gehört. *gähn*
****
vocals von smith... gefällt sehr gut!
******
Shame on me.... Wie konnte ich diese waveige 80's-Perle vergessen !?!

*****
Dem hört man die Jährchen an. Solides Werk ohne Höhepunkte.
***
nicht so gut
*****
Noch einmal fünf Punkte für diesen TFF-Klassiker.
****
Guter Durchschnitt, war auch auf der B-Seite von "Mad World".
****
Paßt in die Zeit...
******
Sehr guter TFF-Song.
*****
Weer een TfF-klassieker. Een sample van deze plaat werd later nog gebruikt voor de hit "No deeper meaning" van Culture Beat in 1991, maar zoals altijd, het origineel blijft het beste.
**
2+
*****
gut.
****
Buena.
******
Perfekt
****
Okay
*****
Ist das tatsächlich ein Xylophon? Witzig!
****
sticht eindeutig wegen der Xylophon-Klänge hervor, Gesang spricht mich hingegen weniger an – 4*...
***
mittelmässig

war auch nur in den usa ein hit us # 78
****
Einer der schwächeren Songs auf "The hurting". Insbesondere Refrain ist etwas gar fantasielos...
****
08/15 von ihnen... --4.
*****
Good
**
Zwakjes.
*****
Guter alter 80s Wave, plätschert, wummert cool vor sich hin, den mochte ich schon immer, lädt auch total zum Tanzen ein, irgendwie :)
*****
guter Hit

CDN: #23, 1983
USA: #73, 1983
*****
Sehr gut!
*****
Etwas schwächer als die beiden Top Songs aus "The Hurting" nach meinem Geschmack, trotzdem sehr angenehmer Track. Chartsmäßig in UK absolut auf einem "Mad World" und "Pale Shelter" Niveau.
*****
Stimme meinem Vorredner zu, nicht so stark wie "Mad World" und "Pale Shelter", aber dennoch sehr gut, ich entscheide mich für ne knappe 5! Finde zudem die Extended Version sehr gelungen!
IRL #8, AUS #29
****
mooie plaat
*****
Uitstekend nummertje.
*****
damals live erlebt, überzeugender Song
****
sie hatten bessere
****
blijft goed
****
De opmaat naar nog veel meer moois, deze Change.
**
Trop confus.
****
Knapp gut
****
Ihr zweiter Hit in UK und mit # 4 sogar ein recht großer.
*****
Geen top 40 hit, wel in de nationale hitparade tot plaat 32 gekomen. Grappig. Goede plaat en de voorbode van nog meer moois....
***
One from their catalogue that I didn't like much at first, but eventually came to like it. Chorus is underwhelming but the song does have some good synths and sound effects.
#29 peak in Australia, 1983; #4 peak UK.
⌜ᴰᴬ⌝ Ꮲk.⌠#43⌡
***
Kann mich nicht so richtig überzeugen.
****

Das mit dem Xylophon finde ich auch originell.
