John Schmidt It's like taking a trip to an alternate dimension where Bud Fox, Gordon Gekko, and Patrick Bateman are partying together at a nightclub playing unreleased Joy Division tracks remixed as synthwave. Fantastic. Favorite track: Video Tapes.

Jakesy Stop reading this and start listening.

a truly great album that captures the highs and dark lows of wall Street. I felt torn on whether I should listen to it in the bustle of the trading floor, in my private office or if I should invite a friend round to my modern apartment which I've just lined with newspaper and raincoats ( for those splashback stains) every track is a joy from the bouncy bass of pump and dump to the dark implications of video tapes.
buy this album and then buy the entire discography because as Gordon said "greed is good". Favorite track: Wild Life.

I hope the stock value for Shadows and Mirrors will skyrocket because this business-oriented album is just amazing. Not only is the sound absolutely terrific to listen to, it's got that vibe they were probably going for. I mean, once the synths in Money kick in, I immediately pictured a timelapse of suits on a busy day on Wall Street, and then come the awesome Depeche Mode-ish vocals. Insider Trading, Nightscene and Video Tapes are definitely the songs that stand out for me.
Favorite track: Video Tapes.

Jean-Paul DuQuette Very amiable synth-pop with flavors of early Depeche Mode and the Eurythmics with the deadpan vocal delivery of bands like The Weathermen. Favorite track: Wake Up Call.

about

For most of 1987 Wall Street's bull market continues to surge upwards. The remarkable 5 year long spree has catapulted the Dow Jones Industrial average 777 points. Then, on October 19th, the bubble bursts. On what becomes known as "Black Monday" panic sets in.
