Originally released on One Last Dream label back in 1990 and with a colour picture as cover,this is instead the copy that Gina Fear sent to me back in 1996 and it has a handmade cover,the name of the label is not listed and neither the year of release.Here I am attaching a review that I have found on discogs.
Ah, now, this is a little better. The NOSTALGIE ETERNELLE side is
well-played - a little moody, a little poppy. The vocalist sounds not
unlike ADI NEWTON singing up an octave. The music reminded me at times
of JOY DIVISION & BAUHAUS, with elements of early FASHION, without
getting too close to any of these. The bassline on one of the tracks
could have been pinched from THE SLITS "Love & Romance". Although in
this it appears in a different and (dare I say it) better context. The
vocalist is the definite focal point - these people have a bright future
- invest now.
The F.N.T.M. side shows a little maturity over "Equilibrium". The
music is still good, well-constructed synth mood pop, but, as ever, it's
the voice of GINA FEAR which dominates. This time they use a lot more
harmonics and it improves the sound no end. GINA's flat vocal style (?)
takes some getting used to, but it has to be said - it grows!
Considering all three review tapes, this would be a good starting point
for those interested in F.N.T.M. (or NOSTALGIE ETERNELLE!).
Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.
It is a very good tape of "ancient" synth pop!!!
Considered a classic by lots of people.
