Soft Cell – Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret
ROLLING STONE ALBUM GUIDE *** "'Erotic Cabaret' probably goes as far as most pop fans will want to to follow. A strange conceptual salute to the sex in- dustry, it makes the most both of Marc Almond's mannered tenor and David Ball's electronic soundscapes."

The disco earworm Tainted Love for making the Soft Cell debut "Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret" with the most offensive cover photos of the duo Almond/ Ball even became a success album in prudish America. Extended by eight bonus tracks, the early work of the Dekadenz-Popper now available as Remaster-Version on CD. Including Liner Notes, but without where and when information production. Curious."
