REVIEWS

***
Weniger......Tipparade in Mai 1984 in NL.....
*****
5-. Doch ich mag den, wenngleich er nicht an Doctor Doctor oder Hod Me Now rankommt.
*****
Schon ein guter Titel, wenn auch vielleicht nicht auf der Tanzfläche.
*****
Es fehlt der Tick zur 6
*****
Aufgestellter Song, aber nicht ihr bester
***
gute 3
****
naja
*****
Sehr gut gemacht
*****
Ein bissel strub find ich das Teil schon - streckenweise strange Melodiebögen und Instrumenteinsätze (zB. die Mundharmonika). Wird besser mit der/den Zeit/Jahren und mit 80er-Bonus sind knappe 5* sowieso drin meinerseits. 5-

Unbedingt Club Remix Version By Phil Thornalley checken Leute!
*****
sehr gut...
****
UK # 2, aber US # 44, da gingen 1984 die Geschmäcker weit auseinander. Ich bin mit einer 4 dabei.

Bon single de 1984.
****
schöner popsong mit schönen elementen
**
weniger
******
Gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber mit viel Charme.
******
Einfach nur ganz großes Kino!
*****
Stark, besonders die Phil Thornalley-Remix Version.
****
okay
****
anständiger Poptitel aus den 80er, die Mundharmonika-Klänge gefallen – 3.75...
***
Typisches Material der Gruppe.
****
Nett und brav.....

Gute 4.
****
Hat mich jetzt nicht ganz so überzeugt. Es gab bessere Lieder von ihnen.
****
Ok
****
▒ Een vrolijk, maar leuk vergeten plaatje uit begin april 1984 (Holland) van de Britse ex-formatie: "Thompson Twins" !!! Nipt 4 sterren, prima dus !!! (NL Tip 30: 6 wk / # 2) ☺!!!
*****
Größter Hit der Band in UK, ich frage mich bis heute, warum mir der Song so gut gefällt....
*****
Ich mag den Song auch, sicher nicht so stark wie zB "Doctor Doctor", aber im Sommer-Urlaub hör ich den immer wieder gerne! Die ersten 3 "Into the Gap" Singles kammen prima in UK an, waren alles Top 5 Singles (diese hier #2)! In IRL kam der Song bis auf #5!
****
Ist OK, aber nicht viel mehr. Daß ausgerechnet das ihr größter Hit in der Heimat geworden ist, verstehe ich nicht.
***
Hatten ihren Zenit bereits überschritten.
****
pffff

Die hatten ihren Zenit zu dieser Zeit noch nicht erreicht!

Einer der feinen Singles des britischen Trios, die interessanterweise in den USA erfolgreicher waren als in Europa.
****
Fijn nummer van een groep die toch een paar leuke hitjes op z'n naam heeft staan
**
niet geweldig
****
Eine knappe vier.
***

Schwach.
******
Mein Lieblingssong dieser Band. Schöner Mundharmonika-Part, dann der der Wechselgesang in den Versen und schliesslich der hymnische Refrain. 5,5-6*.
*****
sehr schöne 80er-Nummer

CDN: #28, 1984
USA: #44, 1984
***
What peak did this song deserve? That answer is subjective of course, but the divergence of chart peaks that resulted around the globe just gets you wondering.
Synth pop style with some harmonica that I can take or leave.
For me, it was too slow to enjoy, despite some unique characteristics.
#47 peak in Australia, 1984; #2 peak UK; #44 peak USA.
