Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Architecture And Morality album flac

Architecture & Morality is the third studio album by English electronic music band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. It was released on 8 November 1981 by Dindisc. Hailed as the band's seminal work, the album received critical acclaim and has appeared on various lists of the best albums; The Morning News named it the finest record of 1981, and "the blueprint for synth-pop". The album also became a commercial success, selling over four million copies by 2007

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are an English electronic band formed in Wirral, Merseyside in 1978. Spawned by earlier group The Id, the outfit is composed of co-founders Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), along with Martin Cooper (various instruments) and Stuart Kershaw (drums); McCluskey is the only constant member

If there was a clear high point for OMD in terms of balancing relentless experimentation and seemingly unstoppable mainstream success in the . Architecture & Morality is it. Again combining everything from design and presentation to even the title into an overall artistic effort, this album showed that OMD was arguably the first Liverpool band since the later Beatles to make such a sweeping, all-bases-covered achievement - more so because OMD owed nothing to the Fab Four. All it takes is a consideration of the three smash singles from the album to see the group in full flower.

Architecture & Morality is the third album by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD), released on November 8, 1981. Its title is taken from the 1977 book Morality and Architecture: The Development of a Theme in Architectural History and Theory from the Gothic Revival to the Modern Movement by historian David Watkin. Architecture & Morality Q&A

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark released one of the Quietus' favourite albums in 1981. John Doran reflects on the warmth of Architecture & Morality and talks to Andy McCluskey. A lazy but widespread criticism of the English synth pop scene of the early 80s was that it was soulless or lacking in human warmth. While there certainly were acts who came across as detached or alienated (Cabaret Voltaire, The Normal, John Foxx) if anything, the opposite was generally true.
