It seemed an unlikely venture at the time, too -- but somehow or other, this concept album about the chilling terrors of nuclear war is a brilliant tour de force, and has become a cult classic in the process. Brothers Rob and Ferdi Bolland aka Bolland & Bolland (who would go on to greater fame for their work with Falco -- remember "Rock Me Amadeus"?) have concocted a mini rock opera that also functions as a great collection of pop songs. From the opening anthem, "In the Army Now" (which became a minor hit for Status Quo), the Bolland brothers launch into a new wave odyssey that more than lives up to its promise and its premise. "The Dogs of War," "Heart of Darkness," and "Heaven Can Wait" are pure power pop at its finest, while the epic "Cambodia Moon" and "To the Battleground" do the heavy lifting in the ballad department.
