ABC - The Lexicon of Love RIAA Certified Gold! Click here to see this CD at!

By David Cantwell

Brit soul produced by Trevor Horn and including the pop hit "Look of Love," The Lexicon of Love is bursting with hooks, clever lyrics, and synthetic funk-inspired grooves that hold up better than most any others from the early '80s. ABC leader Martin Frey sings with a histrionic despair, at once naive and cynical, and all dressed up by horn and string sections that feel positively overwhelming. Such larger-than-life arrangements may seem over-the-top to some listeners, but as the soundtrack to a lexicon of love--how else would you expect it to sound?

"I'm totally hooked on ABC. Either you get it or you don't. Not only are the songs unforgettable, but the lyrical images are usually perfect. Awesome stuff."


"Layered pop at its best. With throwaways like Valentines Day how could it fail? Maybe wet in places; maybe lyrics too contrived elsewhere, but its polish and novalty made it stand out in a sea of banality. Sharp "pop" riffs with mature surround make this the required albumn of the Awesome80s post punk love-in."
