1984 Pressing With Custom Inner Sleeve. Appears Virtually Unplayed. “Probably The Most Pop-Accessible Of Laurie Anderson's Recorded Work, Mister Heartbreak Features A Number Of Stunning Luminaries On The Cutting Edge Of Popular Music At The Time. Striking Guitar Work By King Crimson Guitarist Adrian Belew Permeates This Disc — Notably On "Sharkey's Day" — Punchy And Angular. The Production And Bass Work From Bill Laswell Is Superb. Peter Gabriel — At The Time Still Coming Off The Buzz Of His Departure From Genesis — Is Featured In A Duet With Anderson On "Excellent Birds." There Is A Heavy Reliance On Early-'80s Synthesizers Which Would Normally Be Very Off-Putting, But Here They Are Executed Well. Nowhere Does The Music Slip Into Irreparable '80s Cliché; It Is Still An Entertaining Listen. Lyrics Are Typical Of Anderson' Work — Complex, Literate, Provocative, Difficult To Fully Comprehend. Haunting "Gravity's Angel" Borrows Imagery From Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow. Spoken Word Delivery On "Sharkey's Night" Is Given By The Legendary William S. Burroughs. This Is A Very Satisfying Listen And A Great Intro For Those Unfamiliar With Anderson's Work.” Mark W. B. Allender, All Music Guide.
