China Crisis 컬렉션을 완성하세요. 집됨 over 7 years ago 다음 참조: What Price Paradise, CD, Album, CDV2410. The 4th China Crisis album continues in the vein of the previous one with the band mining what would become the CHR sound of VH-1 as in their previous "Flaunt The Imperfection. The standout track here is the vigorous "June Bride;" inexplicably never a single except as a promo to radio stations in Spain!

What Price Paradise is the fourth studio album by English new wave group China Crisis. It was released on CD, LP and Cassette in 1986. The CD version featured one bonus track: "Trading in Gold", originally released on the B-side of the "Arizona Sky" single. All tracks written by McNeill/Wilkinson, except where stated. It's Everything" – 5:09. Safe as Houses" – 4:26. Worlds Apart" (Daly, Johnson, Lundon, McNeill, Wilkinson, Kevin Kelly) – 3:35.

With the duo of Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley (replacing Walter Becker) sharing the producer's chair, the songs on What Price Paradise feature warm, intricate arrangements and prominent brass and strings. But while more than one Langer/Winstanley offering of this era overwhelmed its subject with such treatment - Elvis Costello's ill-fated Goodbye Cruel World is a good example - the sophisticated and melodic songs here prosper from the attention to detail.
