Die Band am Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere und dennoch nur durchschnittlich - bis auf Track 6..

Da stimme ich zu 100% zu. Mitte 80er-Pop vom Feinsten, perfekt arrangiert. Aber warum wurde der grosse Hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)" aus demselben Jahr nicht draufgepackt? Ansonsten kein einziger Schwachpunkt, darum verteile ich hier 6*. Absoluter Favorit: "Ghostdancing".

Ist mir eine gute 5 wert.

Don't you ist nicht drauf, weil es nur zum Soundtrack von "Breakfast club" eingespielt wurde.
Dieses Lied war keine Simple-Minds-Komposition.
Die Band mag den Titel deswegen eigentlich nicht.
*****
Ein Meisterwerk!
******
Ihr zweitbestes Album auch wenn hier "Don't You (Forget About Me)" fehlt!

Eigentlich könnte man das 80er Alltagspop nennen, aber sie haben es geschafft auch ohne "Don't You" etwas gutes zusammenzustellen, da macht nebst "Alive And Kicking" auch das rockigere "Ghost Dancing" eine gute Figur oder das Discotaugliche "Oh Jungleland".
"Sanctify Yourself" tönt auch in Ordnung wenn ich mich nicht täusche auch ein Hit gewesen.
"Come A Long Way" ist irgendwie sowas wie die Fortsetzung von "Alive & Kicking"

aber der absolute Knüller auf der CD ist "I Wish You Were Here" und zwar dank dem Refrain!
*****
Excellent studioalbum dat Simple Minds uitbrachten in het jaar 1985. Eigenlijk staan er geen zwakke nummers op; voor mij persoonlijk misschien wel hun beste album ooit.
Totaalscore album: 5

1. Once Upon A Time: 5
2. All The Things She Said: 5
3. Ghostdancing: 4+
4. Alive & Kicking: 6
5. Oh Jungleland: 5
6. I Wish You Were Here: 5
7. Sanctify Yourself: 5
8. Come A Long Way: 4+
*****
Sehr ausgeglichenes Album, noch einen Tick braver und Mainstream-
orientierter als der Vorgänger. Aber da's wirklich keine richtig schlechte
Nummer drauf hat, kann man hier schon mal grosszügig aufrunden....

Ganz knappe 5.

(4.75)
****
Nicht so stark wie das Albums davor
*****
Das mit Abstand kommerziellste Album der Simple Minds, was wohl als logische Konsequenz des Single-Chartbreakers "Don't you" (auf der CD nicht vertreten) gesehen werden muss. Somit hat auch fast jeder Song irgendwie ein bisschen "Don't you" intus - mal mehr ("Alive and Kicking"), mal weniger ("All the things she said"; "Come a long way"). Trotz Mainstream-Tendenzen ein Album wie aus einem Guss, das durchzuhören auch nach über 30 Jahren viel Spaß macht.
*****
1985 hatten die Simple Minds ihren vorläufigen Karrierehöhepunkt erreicht. Auf dem Sprung nach Amerika, zeigten sie sich mit diesem Album gut aufgestellt. Sie konnten mit "Alive & Kicking" und "Sanctify Yourself" zwei gewichtige Hits ihrem Werk hinzufügen, darüber hinaus enttäuschte keiner der Songs auf dem Album. Jimmy Iovine (Produzent von Stars wie Bruce Springsteen, U2) verfeinerte den halligen Sound der Band mit spitzen Gitarrensounds, fuhr die Synthieriffs etwas zurück. Ein zumeist kraftvoller Beat prägt das Album.

Einzelwertungen:
Once Upon A Time 5-
All The Things She Said 5
Ghostdancing 4+
Alive & Kicking 5
Oh Jungleland 4+
I Wish You Were Here 4+
Sanctify Yourself 5
Come A Long Way 4+

Insgesamt knappe 5 Sterne.
