Blancmage: Irene and Mavis

This has only just been re-released, and from what I hear it isn’t indicative of what Blancmange went on to do later, but I did feel compelled to get a copy. I haven’t played it as yet, but it won’t be long and we’ll see (or rather hear) what it’s like.

So I’ve been listening to this for about a week and I have to say that it’s great. Whilst all of the tracks are clearly recognisable as the original songs they are of course very different from the original versions, and that’s good. Also Neil’s voice is different too. It’s a great album and I’m looking forward to hearing the remix album coming out next year.

Well done Blancmange.

The re-worked version of Blancmange’s first album. It’s a really good set of tracks and whilst all the tracks are clearly recognisable as the original songs the new versions are very good indeed. I’m enjoying them.
