The Psychedelic Furs: All Of This And Nothing (CBS 4611104/CD) ****
Roy Wilkinson, Sounds, 6 August 1988
CHEEKBONES JUTTING, skin pallid, voice abrading, this is rock hewn from the demi-monde, a realm where a draw on a cig should always be meticulously choreographed. Richard Butler is a past master of this genre and the way these songs teeter on the edge of melodrama, a step away from kitsch crossness, is central to their appeal.
