Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - The Pacific Age (1986)

Pre-order/buy OMD's new album, English Electric here.

Yes, there are synthetic horns and other indicators that this album was recorded in the 80s. But if you're into the grand, swooning synth pop sound that they perfected with "If You Leave", what's not to love? Aside from "Southern," a cheesy instrumental featuring an MLK speech sample, of course.

1. Stay (The Black Rose and the Universal Wheel)
2. (Forever) Live and Die
3. The Pacific Age
4. The Dead Girls
5. Shame
6. Southern
7. Flame of Hope
8. Goddess of Love
9. We Love You
10. Watch Us Fall

Those girls are laughing now
They take my breath away
