Released in 1981 and seamlessly blending passion, sleaze and synths, this was the stunning debut album by the influential duo Soft Cell. The album's critical and commercial success was helped by the worldwide success of its lead single single "Tainted Love," a cover version of a soul song by Gloria Jones, which topped charts worldwide. The album produced two more wonderful top five singles in the U.K. in the shape of "Bedsitter" and "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye." Meanwhile the infamous "Sex Dwarf" caused something of a national furore. Bravo, Soft Cell! Reissued 2014.
