The Simple Minds Twitter account @SimpleMinds1977 (an unofficial, fan run account – that is wonderfully maintained by Shaun Edwards) is currently running “knock out round” polls to find the favourite SM song from each of their studio albums. We’ve reached “Our Secrets Are The Same”.
What a truly overlooked and underrated album it is! A lot of fans think that Cry is the catalyst to the “return to form” (if ever they truly “lost” form for that long?) for the band. NOT FOR ME! It is Our Secrets Are The Same! If ANY album was worthy of a reissue it is this! It is buried within Virgin’s box set release of Silver Box. It needs to see the light of day in its own right!
Please, guys, consider the next reissue to be “Secrets”? It deserves prominence!
