The Politics of Dancing (Extended Version).

Dance Classic 2 - P. 1983 EMI Records.

The Politics of Dancing is the debut album by British band Re-Flex, recorded in late 1982 and released in 1983 through EMI, and was, until September 2010, their only officially released studio album. The album itself received moderate success, charting at in New Zealand, in the United States, and in West Germany, but the title track was a big international success and became the band's signature song, causing some to label them a one-hit wonder

Re-Flex is one of a handful of bands from the '80s I still listen to regularly, and I own a collection of their material on both CD and vinyl. So, while it's unfortunate no further albums from Re-Flex were officially released at the time (EPs excluded and, yes, there are bootleg copies of Humanification floating around the Internet), Paul Fishman et al have finally released a complete remastering of the entire Re-Flex catalog

Even with the admirable breadth, though, the album is mostly a bland array of robotic bass and drums, effects-riddled guitars, and annoying keyboard accents. Approach with tongue firmly in cheek.

Excellent synth-pop made up for dancing souls! Highly suggested for fans of early Talk Talk, Devo or Human League.
