The author of the liner notes to Thompson Twins Greatest Hits (1996) stepped up his game for this assignment. I wonder if he perhaps laid it on too thick? Some choice samples of his thoughts on the Thompson Twins:
...without question, the most creative, the most clever, the most adventurous, and the most human of the synth-pop league.
..it was the Thompson Twins who (some would say) single-handedly pushed [pop music] over the edge, formulating a new dimension in sound.
By being themselves, the Thompson Twins created a safe haven for those of us who didn't necessarily fit into society's so-called set of rules and regulations.
What do you think, class?
