It wasn't instant for me when it came out but I grew to love it. Unlike Tactful Cactus, I don't hear it much nowadays so, on the rare occasions I do, it is still a bit of a treat.
Love Wars is great, too, but I prefer Teardrops.

Love Wars is great, Teardrops isnt.

Just me not sure, then?

Great singing, not horrible as 80s trappings go, but definitely on the wrong end of the General Timeline of Funkiness.

Well, yeah. It's like Terence Trent D'Arby or something. Soul and 80s production? like gardening and nuclear war.

Unless you're Alexander O'Neil doing 'Criticise' with that fucking KILLER chorus. This doesn't have one.

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

An utterly brilliant track, much superior to Love Wars - which is pretty good.

It's not a masterpiece, but it is a fun late 80s gem in the same vein as Heartache Avenue or some other cheesy pop confection. A nice little toe tapper.
