Plan B Ill Manors "NO such thing as broken Britain, we're just bloody broke in Britain."

Blancmange The Very Best Of THE duo never hit the heights of OMD, Soft Cell or Pet Shop Boys and, seven songs in, you see why. While Living o n the Ceiling, Blind Vision and Waves are great synth pop tunes, the rest of the 19 tracks on disc one just don't have it.
