Men At Work

Business As Usual
1982 US Original With Custom Printed Inner. Nice VG+ copy. Matrices Show Pitman & Carrollton Pressing & Metal Work. Label Also Shows "p 1981" And Producer Credit Included On Rear Cover. "Business As Usual Became A Surprise International Hit On The Basis Of "Who Can It Be Now?" And "Down Under," Two Excellent Singles That Merged Straight-ahead Pop/rock Hooks With A Quirky New Wave Production And An Offbeat Sense Of Humor. Colin Hay's Keening Vocals Uncannily Recall Sting, And The Band's Rhythmic Pulse And Phased Guitars Also Bring To Mind A Bar Band Version Of The Police. And That Helps Make The Remainder Of Business As Usual Enjoyable. There's A Fair Amount Of Filler On The Record, But "Be Good Johnny," "I Can See It In Your Eyes," And "Down By The Sea" Are All Fine New Wave Pop Songs, Making Business As Usual One Of The More Enjoyable Mainstream-oriented Efforts Of The Era." AMG - Stephen Thomas Erlewine.
