Some songs are ace (Dogs Of Lust, Slow Emotion Replay), by the way on The The's official website you can listen to every single song, as I recall.

Mind bomb is one of the best album i know. 8 great tracks. Very dark, but arrangement and production are awsome. Beyond love and Kingdom of rain with Sinead O'Connor will blow your mind. Track 7, Gravitate to me is co-written with Johnny Marr. <!--emo&:B-->Image<!--endemo-->

I just recently bought Soul Mining and it was a very satifying purchase! They have a myspace page too so you can listen to free songs there if you want.
I haven't heard much else by the the apart from Soul Mining- the version i have has only seven songs so its a little short but its really good- "this is the day" is a standout song for me.

I've only heard Mind Bomb. It's a good album. I also think Kingdom of Rain and Beyond Love are great tracks.

Infected (1986) was a bloody good album, but it probably sounds a bit dated now as it was very topical and political. Poor Matt used to go around with the weight of the world on his shoulders! <!--emo&:(-->Image<!--endemo-->

I think that's probably their most popular song; I love the lyrics. It's a bit of an anthem for hopeless optimists. Ooh, you've made me want to play it now <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->

The Beaten Generation is brilliant. Great use of a harmonica..a rare thing and the lyrics are rather marvelous

Is he still making music? Their website and myspace seem pretty up to date for a band that hasn't done anything in some time.
