The Luxury Gap by Heaven 17
Released: Oct 1983
Label: Virgin Catalogue
Highlighted by the new wave classic "Let Me Go," Heaven 17's second album contains some of the band's best songs ("Who'll Stop the Rain," "We Live So Fast," and the very stupidly titled "Lady Ice and Mr. Hex"). That said, Heaven 17 were more of a singles band and The Luxury Gap doesn't really hold together as an album. Though the Sheffield group meant their ironic sleeve artwork and lyrics as attacks against Thatcher's Britain, young bankers and stockbrokers ended up using their songs as "get ahead" anthems.
