Formed in 1979, Claire Grogan brought her little-girl voice to the pop scene with this Glasgow-based band. Altered Images is best known for their hit single Happy Birthday that reach #3 in the UK, but don't let this bubblegum pop song fool you. Their stuff has a far more moodier edge, heavily influenced by producer Steve Severin from Siouxsie and The Banshees. Gems on this collection are: "Day's Wait", "See Those Eyes", "Don't Talk To Me About Love", and the controversial "Dead Pop Stars". The rest of the album deserve a closer listen including the haunting, classic "Bring Me Closer".
