Journeys to Glory

Spandau Ballet


When the perceived flagship band of the original Blitz Kids scene that birthed the new romantics got around to making an album, both expectations and skepticism were high to say the least, not least given that Spandau Ballet were known as much for their ever shifting fashions as for any of their music. Journeys to Glory makes for a game start in the end, the most coolly focused full-length they released — Tony Hadley’s not entirely in full vocal flight yet — and songs like “To Cut a Long Story Short,” “The Freeze” and “Musclebound” became early standards.
