Fact: OMD’s ‘Architecture & Morality’ is a benchmark of electronic pop, not just within the Synth Britannia era that spawned THE HUMAN LEAGUE, DEPECHE MODE, SOFT CELL, ULTRAVOX, GARY NUMAN etc but the genre itself.
Founder member Paul Humphreys told The Electricity Club back in 2010: “I think ‘Architecture & Morality’ was a complete album, it was just so whole. The sound of it was unique, every song…it wasn’t a ‘bitty’ album. A few of our albums are ‘bitty’ but that was where we finally found a sound that was OMD. I think the first two albums were leading to ‘Architecture & Morality’. We were refining our sound and then we found it.” More Inside » [via The Electricity Club]
