Soft Cell – Where The Heart Is (12″)

The first signs that the Soft Cell’s bubble had popped with the recording buying public was the general lukewarm reception towards the “difficult” second album, “The Art Of Falling Apart” This single was from it was and was released in November 1982, before the album. Epic and more organic sounding, Mike Thorne was joined by engineer and mixer Harvey Goldberg and Don Wershba. To me it is a more complex but muddled sound, probably too much going on and it does go on a bit with the nine and a half minute version here.
