SOUL MINING (284 words)
Soul Mining is somewhere between Howard Jones and Shriekback: smart synthesizer pop with a dark streak.
That the song was used to peddle Dockers pants shows that its appeal is shallow (and to the agency hack who came up with that idea: hope you enjoy being a dung beetle in your next life).
I like Soul Mining; itÂ’s got a gothic/Bauhaus vibe that makes it much cooler to listen to than Howard Jones.
Working Dogs Book Store - Infected (415 words)
Johnson's ennui notwithstanding, this is a crime; the double miracle of 1983's "Soul Mining" and 1986's "Infected" are among the most prescient and timeless works of the decade.
"Soul Mining" is magnificent, make no mistake, and songs like "Uncertain Smile" and especially the caustic anthem "This Is The Day" (recently used without irony on a car commercial) are peerless.
It is consistently moving and varied throughout, more so than "Soul Mining"; the addition of the female vocal counterpoint in "Slow Train..." is particularly effective.
