Psychedelic Furs "Psychedelic Furs"

Today’s Cool Album of the Day  is the debut album by “The Psychedelic Furs.”

Dark, eerie, creepy etc etc. This album has been described by all those great words. But I think it’s a wonderful body of music.

It’s amazing how many times I like a bands debut album the best. But how many times have I heard the ol’ saying, ‘You have your whole life to write your first album, a year to write the second.’

Great dark sound. Kinda like a pissed off Roxy Music. Some exception saxophone work highlights the sound.

Favorite tracks? ‘India’ and ‘Sister Europe.’

The Psychedelic Furs was mostly produced by Steve Lillywhite and the band.

It reached number 140 on the Billboard Charts.
