Liverpool

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex S. Garcia
Frankie Goes to Hollywood's first double album was a huge hit. Their second offering also met with some success, although it is not as well remembered. And yet, on many accounts, Liverpool can be considered as an improvement over its predecessor. For one thing, the album is shorter, more conventional.

Worth a listen if you like the band or have an interest for '80s music -- of which this is not such a bad sample.
