    I remember the ’78 debut when it came out knocked people off their feet at the time with its unique and infectious New Wave style, a magnificent album, pretty much specifically driven into uniqueness with Ocasek’s distinctive vocal style. This very strong follow up that came out the next year certainly did not disappoint and in fact expanded from the debut with some art rock ventures mixed in with the rock cuts that added positively to the listening experience.

    Every review I read on this credits Hawkes and Orr carrying the rhythm track but you can clearly hear Elliot Easton playing touch harmonics on guitar throughout the track. The harmonics are different in attack from the keyboard part. More critical listening would be a good start.
