Big Ian H To be honest I love both tracks equally. You can't go wrong with Sweet Machine. The sound of the future as it was in 1979 but still contemporary in 2020. If you like Numan, the Human League, OMD, early Depeche Mode you'll love this. Buy it!
Favorite track: Isolation.

I travelled through the world today Went to places far away I drank tea in Katmandu If you like, you can do it too From the grass of Amsterdam To the jungles of Vietnam They may say, it’s in my head I stay inside, just like they said Don’t pack your bags Or run to the station You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation Ride with gauchos though the Pampas Play the pipes in your pink pajamas Feel the breeze brush through my hair As I ride on in my chair Crash waves on the Cocacabana Pick fruit in the cool Bahamas All these things, I have to do From the cell that’s my front room Don’t pack your bags Or run to the station You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation Don’t pack your bags Or run to the station You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation Throw money in the Trevi Fountain Scream and shout on Thunder Mountain A wild ride or a roll in the hay A goat curry on Montego Bay London, Paris, Istanbul Dacca, Dehli ,Timbuktu Sydney, Hong Kong Places new Staying home is the thing to do Don’t pack your bags Or run to the station You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation Don’t pack your bags Or run to the station You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation New York London Paris Munich No-one’s playing Pop music You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation You’ll have to do it all On an armchair vacation

"Fantastic, authentic, melodic old-skool electro, reminiscent of Morodor and Oakey at their best!"

“Original synthpop with a strong 80’s vibe – Depeche Mode meets Pulp!”

“A full house danced to the bands twin synthesisers, with ace base and psychedelic effects to glam the night to a higher plain”
