Laughing Academy - Suspicion - 1985

The Laughing Academy - Suspicion

Some time ago my friend recommended me this band as he owned their album in the 80s and used to play it all the time. So I bought it and I wasn't disappointed. Laughing Academy sounds pretty nice, especially tracks like Suspicion, Belonging (great synth line) or Brief Encounter that sounds a like very soft version of All That I Wanted by Belfegore...

Thanks for this one - very nice lp!
It might not be the greatest new wave album ever,still though,it's a very good record:
for some weird reason,it makes feel...i'm travelling via car,visiting new landscapes or something...
Or maybe i'm just being foolishly over-emotional and romantic at the moment,he-he...anyway,thanks again ;-)
