I own the original vinyl of this second Buggles album and to have it released now on cd with a load of bonus material is fantastic. Trevor Horn has done a superb job with this. For diehard YES fans alone this is well worth buying not only for the two versions 'of ' I am a camera ' but for the terrific ' We can fly from here ' - parts 1 and 2 which YES put their own stamp on in a live context. It would have been marvellous had the prog rockers recorded a studio version of this song but The Buggles version really is excellent in its own right. In short, I can highly recommend this disc. It really does represent fantastic value for money.

Everyone remembers "Video Killed The Radio Star", some people may even remember follow up singles "The Plastic Age" (a better record than "Video" IMO), "Elstree" and "Clean Clean". Hardly anyone remembers this album, or got to hear it the first time round in 1981. Here is an opportunity to rectify that.
"Adventures In Modern Recording" sounds simply superb. The mastering has brought this collection to life, to the point where it feels like a brand new contemporary album. Every track sounds incredibly fresh and new, with an audible depth I'd not heard before on the original vinyl or 90s CD issues. "Vermillion Sands", "Inner City" and "Lenny" are sonic masterpieces, whilst the title track and "On TV" in particular race along with crisp technopop clarity and rhythm. "I Am A Camera" is the Buggles hit that never was, and is featured in 7" and 12" form.
The slip case and artwork are beautiful. The liner notes informative, and with TEN(!) bonus tracks not on the original album it's incredible value for money. For Yes fans, the presence of parts one and two of "We Can Fly From Here" probably make it essential, and The Buggles demo of "Videotheque" (a 1982 hit Trevor went on to produce for Dollar) is a revelation to hear.
