Yellow Judge
One of the best albums of the 80s. Fantastic, very energetic mixture of electro/hip hop, industrial, proto house and the styles to come in the 90. It's also an early masterpiece of sampler use. Sadly it haven't received recognition it deserves.
I hope one day that Cherry Red will remaster/reissue this with bonus mixes... I've asked them already and can only hope.
It's now available online as a download with bonus tracks, that's great.
Amazing album, without a doubt under-rated (the fact that it's never been remastered on CD is not only a shame but proof of this). First Age Of Chance song I heard was 'Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Noise' and for a while I assumed this was their one lasting song, like most 80's acts, but after getting their first EP, Crush Collision, I knew differently. And when I finally got this album I was floored; while it's still similar in style to their earliest work, this album takes on numerous different genres, and like a black hole just sucks it in and compresses it into this minimal sound that combines Mantronix-esque hip hop, rudimentary industrial, synth dance, rockabilly and etc into something that could only be pulled off by Age Of Chance. And don't forget their image alone that probably would've struck an odd chord with the new romantics of the time. Even though this album was a year old by the time I was born, I can only imagine what synth-hoarding tear-jerking groups like Kaja Goo Goo may've thought of Age Of Chance (if they noticed at all). Other musicians at the time, who were bridging the gap between 'white' music and 'black' music like Prince (perhaps not a coincidence) Gary Numan, Michael Jackson and few others, were much more respected and glorified than Age Of Chance, perhaps it is because Age Of Chance take their sound almost to a mocking point, like they say 'We're Age Of Chance, we'll eat your well-established genres and spit them back at you' (that's at least what they're saying in my mind)! Mecca, on the other hand, can't hold up to my tastes, just as so many people were making similar albums. Oh well, the world still has early Age Of Chance.
