LIMITED TRANSPARENT 180 Gram, numbered to 1000! Journeys To Glory is the first studio album by Spandau Ballet. When it was released in 1981, the album was considered ‘fresh, bold, and even somewhat avant-garde’. Many fans feel that the sparse, drum-led, funk-undertones are more original than the group’s later soul-influenced recordings. Several of their New Romantic contemporaries (Ultravox, Duran Duran, Visage), were musically quite credible. Spandau Ballet proved at a very young age they were a force to be reckoned with. Songs like ‘To Cut A Long Story Short’ and ‘Musclebound’ are the album’s highlights.
