REVIEWS
Average points: 4.1 (Reviews: 21)
*****
gut
***
Etwas eintöniges Chartsdebüt, # 30 in den USA und # 67 in GB im Winter 1982/83.
***
Reißt einen nicht gerade vom Hocker, das ganze Arrangement ist noch recht simpel und der Titel besticht noch nicht durch einen einprägsamen Refrain alà "Hold me now" oder "Doctor Doctor".
*****
early work... sintypop
***
netter popsong der frühen 80´er... gibt viel bessere von tt
***
Gefällt mir weniger, ist mir zu monoton.
****
Sehr mässig, auch mit Eighties-Bonus nur genügend.
*****
Stark.
******
Ich bin großer TT-Fan - Höchstwertung, das ist der Soundtrack meiner Jugend.
****
Okay
****
gefälliger Synth Pop-Titel, zwischendurch leicht asiatisch angehaucht – 3.75...
****
Ich mag sie nicht wirklich, aber ich schätze ihre Maxisingles. Auch hiervon eine wirklich Gute: 5:23 Minuten.

Die Maxisingle Version kenn ich leider nicht, aber die
"normale" finde ich dann doch ziemlich dünn....

Ok
****
...gut...
****
Mit etwas gutem Willen 'ne knappe 4. Der leichte japanische Touch gab den Ausschlag... ;-)
*****
Fand ich ne coole Single...danach kamen natürlich noch stärkere Songs, aber das war auch schon toll! In AUS#27
****
Mit "Quick Step & Side Kick" hatten sie ihren typischen Radio-freundlichen Sound gefunden - daraus dieser solider Song.
****
Zwar schräg gesungen, aber mit Charme.
*****
...gut...

CDN: #12, 1983
USA: #30, 1983
****

Später hatten sie paar bessere Songs...ja und diesen japanische Touch mag ich auch.
