    This article nails it better than any I’ve ever read. He’s more or less saying that even by 1983, they were miles out of step with whatever else was going on around them. That’s largely down to Richard and the material he chose for Karen from 1980 onwards. I honestly believe that had Karen lived, and they’d gone down this road throughout the 1980s, that they would have died a slow death as a successful commercial act. The decline had already begun anyway.

    ^^Yes, the above "Stereo Review" review of VOH
    says it all: both the positives and the negatives regards the album-- and the duo !
    That was an insightful review of the Album's strengths.
    I do like to see Two Lives on someone's radar ! A great song.....

  4. Can a mod change this? I have two copies on 8-Track and that’s missing as one of the Mediums. Thanks
