055 - ABC - 1982 - The Lexicon of
ABC is famous for their gentlemen style and the blend of NEW WAVE, DISCO, DANCE in New Romantic Movement.This group is leaded by the vocalist Martin Fry who composed many high-quality tunes.
Though they look like idols in MTV,their music say it all with brilliant arrangement and impressing voice.
The Lexicon Of Love is their best album indeed.Look of Love, Pt. 1 is supposed to be their classic single.
Brit soul produced by Trevor Horn and including the pop hit "Look of Love," The Lexicon of Love is bursting with hooks, clever lyrics, and synthetic funk-inspired grooves that hold up better than most any others from the early '80s. ABC leader Martin Frey sings with a histrionic despair, at once naive and cynical, and all dressed up by horn and string sections that feel positively overwhelming. Such larger-than-life arrangements may seem over-the-top to some listeners, but as the soundtrack to a lexicon of love--how else would you expect it to sound? --David Cantwell
