Blancmange - What's Your Problem? 12"
One of my favorite synthpop 12" singles, and one to rival their other great 12" releases "Don't Tell Me" and "Living On The Ceiling". I never really liked the album version of "What's Your Problem?", but picked it up as it also has the 12" mix of "Living On The Ceiling" as a flip song. "What's Your Problem?" is produced by Stewart Levine, and he does a great job in giving this track some life for this 12". The other flips song, aptly named "Side Two" is a pile of bollocks, and sounds like it was made in 10 mins. Could we NOT have come up with a better name?! The 12" is a great investment, and if you like Blancmange and don't have this, pick it up! It's more than worth it for having the extended version of both of these tracks, as they are both exceptional synthpop songs! If you like "Side Two", then kudos to you! As always, let me know what you think! It only takes a minute to drop me a line and let me know if this is something you enjoyed or not, and gives me an idea you want me to post more of it :)
