Psychedelic Furs - Midnight to Midnight - 1987

No personal accounts on this album, but by the time this one came out, the Furs were knee-deep in sell-out.  Everything was a pop-hook written for radio, trying too hard, and you could tell.  Throw in that they had to re-record Pretty In Pink for a movie, and you've got a band bound for mediocrity.

I really like most of the tracks on this album, and I had fun assembling this somewhat comprehensive set, but it was with a sense of forlorn condemnation, as I knew that by the time Book of Days came out, their better days would be behind them.  It was fun while it lasted.


  1. Greetings from Vermont - looking forward to this. I loved their first three Lps. Thank you!

  2. Your notes on this album and The Psych. Furs at the time, is SPOT ON! As far as I concern; It all stopped after "Mirror Moves".
    Someone even say That one's a sell-out, but I'll strongly disagree. It's Great! But their creative flow Stopped just there. But what a Band they were from 1980 - and throughout 1984!
