French 1982 pressing.

Associate’s second album, “SULK,” is often seen as an 80s pop masterpiece akin to Talk Talk’s “Spirit of Eden” and Prefab Sprout’s “Steve McQueen,” yet opinions on the art-pop compositions and Billy Mackenzie’s unique vocals vary. The album’s unconventional tracklist places hits like “Party Fears Two” at the bottom in 1982, defying the typical arrangement. “SULK” offers a mix of captivating ballads, gothic touches, and post-punk, delving into themes of obsession and hysteria. A 40th-anniversary edition features bonus tracks, showcasing the duo’s versatile sound, including live performances that highlight their forward-thinking approach to music.
