3 stars Compared to the Neo bands who were putting out records at this time (and getting 3 to 5 star ratings) I think "90125" holds it's own very well. This is accessible music with some clever vocal arrangements and great instrumental work. This is a good record.

"Owner Of A Lonely Heart" has such a good beat thanks to Squire and White. Of course the vocals are outstanding and there is some scorching guitar as well. "Hold On" has a nice drum intro as guitar comes in. Not a bad heavy sound to this one. The vocal melody before 3 minutes is cool bringing back the past. "It Can Happen" is a favourite of mine. There is an Eastern feel at times and Squires' bass lines are fabulous. Mood changes aplenty as it can get pretty atmospheric at times.

"Changes" opens with an almost 2 minute instrumental. Nice. The chorus is uptempo while the verses are melancholic. "Cinema" is an instrumental that was recorded live at Air Studios in London. Some screaming guitar, synths, and great drumming on this one. "Leave It" features some terrific vocal arrangements. "Our Song" is an ok uptempo song with lots of synths. "City Of Love" is probably the worst song on the album. "Hearts" has an Eastern sound at times and some aggressive guitar solos.

So yeah it has it's highs and lows but overall this is a recording I would recommend.
